How to make

  • Take a shift and put the besan on it. Now shift properly into a big bowl so that all the lumps are removed.
  • Now add onion, green chillies, turmeric powder, baking soda, ajwain, and salt one by one and mix very well.
  • Then add the chopped curry leaves and coriander leaves and a little bit of water to bind all the ingredients.
  • The batter will not be too thin or too thick. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, place a wok on high flame and pour oil.
  • As soon as the oil becomes hot, keep adding a spoonful of batter into the oil and fry them till both sides are golden brown.
  • To ensure uniform cooking of the pakoras, do not overcrowd the oil.
  • When done, serve hot with a cup of tea.

Besan pakora recipe in another style

Besan pakora is so versatile that you can prepare it in different ways as well. Mixed vegetable pakora with besan is another favourite of the Indian folks. Chop different vegetables like carrots, beans, cabbage and capsicum and mix them with besan. Add a pinch of salt, chopped green chillies and red chilli powder. Pour just a bit of water to combine all the veggies. The batter will be a bit dry. If you want, you can add a pinch of baking soda. Now take some of the mixtures in hand and place in the hot oil. Let them fry till they get a nice golden colour on both sides. These pakoras go very well with tomato sauce or chutney too.

Plain besan pakora recipe

If you are not fond of onion or veggies or do not have anything at the moment, you can still have plain besan pakora which is equally tasty. Just mix some besan with water, salt, red chilli powder, ajwain and dry the pakoras. These pakoras are the perfect accompaniments for a rainy evening.
