Cookery: Mixed vegetable pakodas

How deep fried is your love?

I made these pakodas for lunch yesterday. Yes, i can deep fry anytime. That's how much i love fried food!

All ye health nuts, go away now!

I learnt to make this version of pakodas from my mother who never ever experiments but she did try to this one time and it was a super hit. (Btw, i have a lot of recipes for fries!!)

I threw in equal quantities of finely chopped carrots, potatoes, beans, cauliflower, american corn kernels, onions and peas and lots of coriander. It was about 2 cupfuls in all.

Add besan / chickpea flour - enough to cover the veggies, about 3 tablespoon, i'd say. Add salt to taste and 1 teaspoon read chili powder. Also add 1 and half teaspoon ginger garlic paste. Add water. Mix.

The mix shouldn't be watery at all... add water little by little till the dough comes together. Heat oil in a iron wok or non-stick frying pan (i prefer the former... it's healthier i think!). Drop small lumps of the batter and fry for a bit in low flame. Raise the flame after a minute or two. Remove when they are golden brown. Serve.

Awesome as is. But you can serve with homemade mint or coriander chutney.

{All my cooking is andaz se / approximate so that's how my recipes posts will be! Sorry!}
