3 Yummy Pakoda Recipes You Need To Try


Chai and pakodas is one of the best combinations which is relished by both classes and masses. Here are a few pakoda recipes you must try for a perfect chai time.

1. Hara Pyaza Pakoda 

Ingredients: 1 bunch spring onion (medium-sized), 2-3 green chillies, 3 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped, ½ tsp ginger minced or grated, 1 tbsp lemon juice, ½ tsp red chilli powder, ¼ tsp turmeric powder, ½ tsp cumin powder, roasted (optional), ¾ cup gram flour (besan), water as required oil for deep-frying salt to taste

Method: Wash the spring onions, cut the roots off and chop both the onions and the green stalks. Keep aside. Chop the green chillies, coriander leaves and ginger finely. In a wide bowl, mix together all the ingredients along with besan and keep aside for five minutes to allow the onions to release some water. Meanwhile, sprinkle 1-2 tbsp water on the besan mixture and simultaneously keep adding 1 tbsp water to maintain the consistency. Now heat oil in a pan and drop spoonfuls of the batter in batches. Deep-fry on medium heat until the pakodas are golden brown on both the sides. Remove the pakodas from the oil, drain the excess oil on an absorbent paper and serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
