The other day we went to an alternative fair, which some food stalls . In one of this we took some Pakoras. Delicious ! After some days, I bought chickpea flour and some vegetables and I cooked it. It is really easy to make, and it is so good. The cons are that you have to use a lot of oil ( I don't really like frying ) and after the kitchen smells off!
This is not the recipe that I follow because I took it from a book, but I think than is more or less the same .
Crispy Vegetable Pakoras
1 cup chickpea flour
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3/4 cup water
1 quart oil for deep frying
1/2 head cauliflower florets
2 onions, sliced into rings
Sift the chickpea flour into a medium bowl. Mix in the coriander, salt, turmeric, chili powder, garam masala and garlic.
Make a well in the center of the flower. Gradually pour the water into the well and mix to form a thick, smooth batter.
Over medium high heat in a large, heavy saucepan, heat the oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Coat the cauliflower and onions in the batter and fry them in small batches until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels before serving.
