North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas

November 18 2021 My New Roots 

North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas Most lovers of North Indian cuisine widely available in North America are familiar with Butter Chicken – the iconic dish that has captured the hearts and bellies of people the world over. In fact butter chicken is likely the most popular and recognizable Indian dish in our neck of the woods, and without a doubt my own personal gateway to the unique flavours of Indian cuisine. This dish was the inspiration for these North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas! When I was 13 or 14, my best friends mother, Annie (who Ive mentioned before in my sushi post – a woman who truly opened my eyes to the world of food beyond hot dogs and hamburgers!), took the three of us to The Host, a famous, Toronto institution that has been running successfully for 24 years. I can still remember the feeling of walking into the space, the air absolutely swollen with mouthwatering scents I had never experienced before. We sat down at the table, covered in a crisp white tablecloth, and a basket of seed-flecked, paper-thin crackers was dropped off along with the menus. Papadam Annie said. I took one bite and the entire thing shattered into my hands, which made us all laugh, and the taste was delicious, even if completely unfamiliar. I had just tried my first cumin seed! This primed my palette for what was to come, and Annie confidently ordered for the table. There were things I recognized, like rice, and flatbread (naan), but most of the dishes were alluringly mysterious, arriving in copper bowls, with colourful sauces and chutneys. Once she explained to put some rice on my plate as a bed for the curries, she handed me a bowl whose scent made my mouth water instantly. Butter chicken she told me. Well, I knew both of those ingredients very well, but not looking like this! Is it spicy? I asked. Not spicy hot, she replied. There are plenty of spices in there, but Id describe it flavourful. I had trusted this woman to guide me through Japanese, Korean, Ethiopian, Greek, Macedonian, and Moroccan restaurant experiences so far, so I took a heaping spoonful of the butter chicken and spread it over the rice.  It was love at first bite. The combinations of flavours, commingling in a sauce that was beguilingly rich and creamy, with huge chunks of perfectly tender chicken throughout was absolutely divine. It was tomato-y, but not overpoweringly so, and deeply aromatic with spices that I had certainly never tasted before. I savoured every bite of that butter chicken, along with chana masala, palak paneer, aloo gobi, and dal makhni. We ate naan, and samosa, and pakora and bhaji. It was a veritable feast that began my love affair with Indian food. Little did I know every corner of the continent, every family, every household brings a diversity and a uniqueness to what we generally label Indian food -- theres so much to explore!     Butter chicken was invented in the 1950s, by a man named Kundan Lal Gurjal, who operated a restaurant called Moti Mahal in Delhi, the capital territory of India. Kundan had settled here in this Northern region of the country and started his business after escaping from political upheaval in another region of India. Moti Mahal was a success, and it served several delicious tandoori dishes, that came from their tandoor oven – a circular clay oven central to Punjabi cuisine.  As the story goes, Kundan didnt want his leftover tandoori chicken to go to waste, but he also didnt want it to dry out, so he mixed leftover marinade juices with tomato and butter, added the chicken to it, and let it all stew – butter chicken was born! Although necessity was the mother of this invention, he likely had no idea that he had created an internationally-loved delicacy that would stand the test of time.  I started eating a vegetarian diet when I was 16, and butter chicken was one of the foods I missed the most. Ive cooked a lot of Indian-inspired food at home over the years, but Id never taken a crack at a plant-based butter chicken until my mom served me a version with chickpeas...brilliant! It was a serious why-didnt-I-think-of-that moment.  One of the things that makes butter chicken so good, is that the chicken is marinated in yogurt and spices before cooking. This step accomplishes two things: one, it tenderizes the meat, and second, it seasons it. Because I was aiming for a weeknight dinner, I decided to skip this step with the chickpeas and just make sure that they were properly cooked and well seasoned before adding to the sauce. I also smashed about half of the legumes. This helped to increase their surface area, break up their tough skins, and allow the flavourful sauce to penetrate to the inner, absorbent centers. I also appreciated having the texture variation in the dish, making it more similar to the OG version. Chickpea Party Tricks We all know that chickpeas are fiber all-stars, providing 50% of your RDI in just one cup, (whoa!) but they have another party trick up their sleeve that I bet you didnt know about. Two-thirds of the fiber in chickpeas is insoluble, meaning that it doesnt break down during digestion, but instead moves through our digestive tract unchanged until it hits the large intestine. The fun starts here, where friendly bacteria (think probiotics!) go to town on said insoluble fiber and actually break it down to create short-chain fatty acids, including acetic acid, propionic acid, and butyric acid. These short-chain fatty acids can then be absorbed by the cells that line the wall of our large intestine and used for energy! How rad is that?! Butyric acid is in fact the preferred source of energy for the cells lining our colon, and with this bonus fuel comes greater potential for optimally active and healthy cells. This translates into a reduced risk of colon problems including colon cancer. So friends, invite chickpeas to your next dinner party - theyll feed you and your colon cells. Can your pot roast do that? Now lets get cooking! For this dish I highly recommend cooking your own chickpeas from dried (I mean, have I ever NOT recommended that?! haha). For one, if you make the entire batch, youre looking at around 4 cans of chickpeas, which is a lot  of waste produced. Second, if you cook the legumes yourself, you can control the amount of salt that you use, as high sodium levels are a concern for some people. Third, they taste way better. Trust me. And fourth, it costs a lot less – I likely dont have to elaborate on that for you If youre not sure how to cook beans from scratch, the full instructions are in this post, and a full video tutorial is up on my membership site, My New Roots Grow. If youre especially interested in this dish, Id love to invite you to the live, online cooking demo on Saturday, December 18th. Part of the Winter Radiance Retreat alongside Mikkala Marilyn Kissi, this recorded, one-day virtual retreat has so many wonderful seasonal goodies planned for you. Check it out and sign up here!  The ingredient list for this recipe may look long, but half of them are spices, and the remaining ones are primarily pantry staples, making this the perfect thing to cook up when you dont have a ton of fresh produce around (Im looking at you, late fall, winter, and early spring!). Cilantro is optional, but such a delicious addition if it’s available to you. And I like to serve the dish with rice or naan, or both. A simple kachumber salad, made with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and lemon juice is a great accompaniment to butter chickpeas when those ingredients are in season. Pro tip: measure out two or more portions in separate containers of the spice mix when youre making it the first time so the next time all you have to do is grab the blend instead of all your individual spice jars!   And what about the butter?! Well, there isnt any classic dairy butter here (although there is no shame in adding it!), instead I used cashew butter to achieve that crave-able creaminess. Some recipes for butter chicken call for whole cashews, which may in fact be easier for some of you to find than cashew butter. If that is the case, sub the cashew butter with whole, raw cashews that have been soaked for 4-8 hours, and add them to the pot with the tomatoes and coconut milk in step 3. If you’d like to know more about soaking and activating nuts, check out my article here. Get a load of that 2008 photography! Print North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas  Author Sarah Britton Ingredients2 Tbsp. coconut oil preferably expeller-pressed or ghee 1 Tbsp. ground cumin 1 Tbsp. ground coriander 2 tsp. ground turmeric 2 tsp. ground ginger 1 Tbsp. garam masala 1 tsp. smoked paprika 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/­­2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper pinch cayenne to taste 1 large yellow onion diced 2 tsp. fine sea salt 5 cloves garlic minced 28 oz. /­­ 796ml whole or diced tomatoes 1 large can 3 Tbsp. tomato paste 1 cup /­­ 250ml full-fat coconut milk 1/­­4 cup /­­ 60ml cashew butter 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice 6 cups /­­ 900g cooked chickpeas from 2 cups dried /­­ approx. 4 cans cilantro for garnish if desired rice and /­­ or naan for serving if desired InstructionsIn a large stockpot over medium heat, melt the coconut oil. Add the cumin, coriander, turmeric, ginger, garam masala, smoked paprika, cinnamon, black pepper, and cayenne. Stir well to mix with the oil, and stir frequently so it doesnt scorch.   Add the onion and salt, stir well to coat, let cook for 5-10 minutes until the onions have softened slightly. Add the garlic, stir well,  and cook for 2-3 more minutes.  Add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, and coconut milk, stirring well to incorporate. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.  While the sauce is simmering, take about half of the chickpeas and smash them flat with the bottom of a drinking glass. This step is optional, but it changes the shape and texture of the chickpeas (see headnote). Transfer the sauce to a blender, add the cashew butter and lemon juice, then blend on high until completely smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired (if youd like it spicier for example, add more cayenne).  Add all of the chickpeas to the sauce and fold to combine. Bring a very light simmer, and let cook for 5 minutes, up to an hour, making sure to stir every so often so the bottom doesnt scorch.  Serve the butter chickpeas over rice with lots of fresh cilantro, and naan if desired. Say thank you and enjoy! NotesServes 8-10 I hope you love this recipe as much as I do, and find the same satisfying coziness with each bite you enjoy. As we head into the darker, colder months of the year, I know Ill be turning to these butter chickpeas to keep me warm and grounded, while picturing us at our stoves, connected in spirit over steaming pots and nourishing bowls.

Korean BBQ Soy Curls Crunchwrap

August 7 2021 Vegan Richa 

Korean BBQ Soy Curls CrunchwrapTry this vegan crunchwrap recipe – a veganized and fusion version! Completely homemade with Korean BBQ Soy Curls, vegan cheese shreds and veggies for the filling. Vegan Crunchwraps have been on constant rotation at my home. These are just SO GOOD! Anyone who loves tacos, wraps and tostadas needs to try this vegan and fusion spin on a Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme! If you have not tried or even heard of crunchwraps, think of it as a soft tortilla packed with layers of some kind of protein & cheese and other layers and a crispy tostada shell. Then all is folded into a neat bundle and pan-fried until crisp. Like most homemade versions of fast-food chain favorites, Crunchwraps taste even better made using fresh, wholesome ingredients! The secret ingredient to a Crunchwrap is a crunchy tostada placed right in the center, separating the cooked from the fresh fillings. As for my fillings, I went with soy curls marinated in a spicy Korean BBQ Marinade with Gochujang. You can use sambal oelek  if you cannot find the Korean chili paste. You can adjust the toppings to make these a bit healthier (low-fat vegan cheeses and up the veggies) and even swap out the white flour tortilla for a whole wheat tortilla or a gluten-free one! Everyone can build their own crunchwrap. These are totally customizable and you can add whatever filling you want. This is where I want to mention that these are also great to use up leftover taco fillings of any kind!

Parathas can be made plain or with a variety of different fillings. A flavorful potato filling is by far the most popular. Aloo Parathas are very popular in North India, at any time of the day. In Punjab, Aloo Parathas are a staple for breakfast. Traditionally, Aloo Parathas are served with homemade butter and buttermilk known as chaas. I'm sure you are thinking that making these parathas is very time consuming. With our busy schedules and hectic mornings, how is possible to prepare these! Of course, parathas taste best when fresh off a hot skillet! An easy solution to this problem is to simply prepare part of the recipe in advance until you are ready to roll the parathas. You can prepare the dough and filling in advance and have the potato-mix filled balls ready to just start rolling. The prepared dough can be refrigerated for up to two days. Enjoy! This Recipe will make 4 parathas.

Knead dough well on a lightly greased surface to make the dough soft, smooth, and pliable. Set the dough aside and cover. Let the dough rest at least ten minutes. FillingIn a bowl take mash potatoes add green chilies, cilantro, cumin seeds, garam masala, mango powder, and salt, mix it well. Making parathaDivide the dough into 4 equal parts and roll them into balls. Then divide the potato filling into 4 parts and shape into balls. Potato balls should be about 1 1/­­2 times larger than the dough balls. Roll dough ball into a 3 circle. Place a filling ball in the center. Pull the edges of the dough to wrap it around the potato filling. Repeat to make all six balls. Let the filled balls settle three to four minutes. Meanwhile heat heavy skillet on medium high heat until moderately hot. To test, sprinkle water on the skillet. If the water sizzles right away, the skillet is ready. Press the filled ball lightly on dry whole wheat flour from both sides. Using a rolling pin, roll the balls lightly to make six-inch circles, keeping the sealed side of the balls on top. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin or rolling surface, lightly dust the parathas with dry flour. Oil the skillet and place the paratha on the skillet. When the paratha starts to change color and begins to puff up, flip it over. You will notice some olden-brown spots. After a few seconds, drizzle one teaspoon of oil over the paratha, and spread with spatula. Flip the paratha again and lightly press the puffed areas with a spatula. Flip again and press with a spatula making sure the paratha is golden-brown on both sides. Repeat for the remaining parathas. Parathas are best served hot and crispy. They will be soft if not served hot. If you are not going to serve them right away, cool them on a wire rack to keep them from getting soggy. Parathas can be kept unrefrigerated for up to two days wrapped in aluminum foil or in a covered container. For later use, parathas can be refrigerated three to four days or frozen for up to a month. Re-heat using a skillet or oven. NotesVariations Substitute chopped cilantro with 1/­­4 cup finely chopped mint leaves, or experiment with your favorite herb. Be sure to pat the herbs dry before adding to the mixture. Serving Suggestions - Parathas can be served with Tomato Chutney, Plain Yogurt, mattar Paneer, Green Chili pickle. - Serve it like a Mexican quesadilla by topping it with cheese and sliced tomatoes, then folding it in half.

Inspiration for Vegetarian Recipes

March 9 2021 Manjula's kitchen 

Inspiration for Vegetarian Recipes As you all know, Indian cuisine will always be my favorite cuisine. It will always have a special place in my heart. However, we are living in different times. Our lifestyle has changed with the emerging culture. The same thing is happening with food. I like that the norms are changing. My family, especially my grandkids, are not happy just with traditional Indian food; they need variety, just like me. I experiment with the different food from different cultures, staying true to my guidelines. Thus, the challenge comes. I have never tried some of these dishes. Finding vegetarian dishes in any given cuisine is not that big of a problem; the problem is finding recipes without onion and garlic. I go on google and YouTube, searching for recipes and creating a dish that makes sense to me. First, I try different sauces. I think that makes it easy to create the dishes for that cuisine. My family gets to try my creations and give me their honest opinions.  They are all brutally honest with their opinions.  Some are hits and some not so much! Believe me, it is not easy to take these hard rejections because I have spent many hours on making these recipes.  Italian is easy; they like marinara sauce, white sauce, pesto, all of which can be used in so many different dishes. I am also very fond of Mexican cuisine! Using salsa and enchilada sauce, many dishes can be made: enchiladas, burritos, taco salad, and many more.    I also have my version of Asian peanut sauce which tastes great in Asian bowls, salads, and wraps. This is a favorite of my oldest granddaughter! I use these sauces in my recipes while making different dishes. Alex has been asking me to do the videos just for the different sauces just like I do for Indian chutneys. It will be easy to refer to when you are doing the next recipe and dont have to repeat the sauce again. Keeping that in mind, I just did the recipe for pesto sauce. The next curry sauce I am trying is Thai Red curry sauce. The post Inspiration for Vegetarian Recipes appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

It's a savory and flavorful chaat, which also happens to be a very popular Delhi street food. I have tried to make this recipe many times but never quite perfected it! Last weekend I had the honor of being a guest judge for a cooking contest which was conducted virtually over Zoom! The contest was for the best air fryer recipe. The winner of this contest, Rashmi Sabjur, happened to make an eggplant chaat. While she was discussing her creative recipe, I got the idea of making a sweet potato chaat in the air fryer. Many people ask me how I am inspired to come up with new recipes…well the answer is people like Rashmi, and of course you all, my viewers! Traditionally, sweet potatoes are cooked over coal, cut into small pieces, and drizzled with lemon juice and spices to make it delicious and flavorful. This spicy chaat is also had a nice crunch. Try this recipe out soon! A special thank you to Rashmi for inspiring me to perfect sweet potato chaat! This recipe is also vegan. This recipe will serve 6. Course Appetizer Cuisine Indian Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 25 minutes Total Time 35 minutes Servings 6 people EquipmentCuisinart TOA-60 Convection Toaster Oven Airfryer Reynolds Kitchens Pop-Up Parchment Paper Sheets Ingredients1 large sweet potato sliced in thick rounds For Batter1 1/­­2 Tbsp all purpose flour plain flour, maida 1 1/­­2 Tbsp corn starch corn flour or arrowroot powder 1/­­2 tsp salt 1/­­4 tsp black pepper 1/­­3 cup water approx Oil spray For Breadcrumbs 1/­­2 cup bread crumb plain unflavored 1/­­2 salt 1/­­4 black pepper For Garnishing 1/­­4 cup whipped yogurt 2 Tbsp hari cilantro chutney 1/­­4 cup tamarind chutney For Garnishing (optional)lemon juice sprinkle over chaat chaat masala powder green chili finely chopped ginger finely chopped InstructionsUse a large, sweet potato. Wash and peel and slice them in rounds of about 1/­­4 inch thick. Keep aside. In a bowl take breadcrumbs, add 1/­­2 tsp salt and 1/­­4 tsp black pepper, and mix it all well. In another bowl mix all-purpose flour, corn starch, 1/­­2 tsp salt, and 1/­­4 tsp black pepper. Add the water slowly and make it into a thick batter. I used about 1/­­3 cup of water. I am using parchment paper over air fryer baking tray oil the parchment paper. Coat both sides of a sweet potato slice in the flour batter and then in the breadcrumb mixture. Shake off any excess breading and transfer the sweet potato slices to an airfryer baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining sweet potato slices. Spray the slices with oil. Bake in air fryer for 10 minutes (on 325-degree Fahrenheit). Then turn the sweet potato slices and bake it again for 10 minutes. Maybe you will have to adjust the time and temperature according to your air fryer. The sweet potatoes will have a nice crunch. You may serve them hot or at room temperature with your favorite garnishing. I prefer with yogurt and chutney. NotesServing Suggestions Sweet potatoes have nice crunch, my favorite way to serve this chaat, is to drizzle with yogurt, little cilantro chutney and top it with tamarind chutney if you like hot and spicy sprinkle with finely chopped green chilies and ginger. I have done cilantro chutney and tamarind chutney recipes earlier; you can find these recipes on my website.

Khasta Kachori Besan (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Khasta Kachori Besan .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } Khasta kachori is a delicacy from north India. Khasta kachori is a spicy puffed pastry. Kachories are made with a variety of different filling, and I have many recipes for Khasta Kachori. They are my favorite over samosa. Maybe one of the reasons is I can prepare them even a few days before and can be served at room temperature and served many different ways, even serving as chaat. Traditionally kachori is sold at HALWAI (a sweet and snack shop). Today, I am using spicy besan filling. These mouthwatering Kachories can be served as a snack, chaat or part of the main meal, making the meal exotic. This recipe will make 12 kachories and will serve 4. Course Appetizer Cuisine Indian Prep Time 25 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Total Time 45 minutes Servings 4 people IngredientsFor Dough1 cup All Purpose flour plain flour or maida 1/­­4 tsp salt 2 Tbsp oil 1/­­3 cup lukewarm water For Filling 1/­­2 cup besan 2 Tbsp oil 1 tsp fennel seeds coarsely grinded saunf 2 tsp coriander seeds coarsely grinded dhania 2 tsp red chili flakes 1 tsp mango powder amchoor 1/­­8 tsp asafetida hing 1/­­2 tsp salt adjust to your taste 1/­­4 tsp dry ginger powder InstructionsTo make dough.In a bowl mix the flour, salt and oil rubbing together, this help making crust crispy. Add the warm water slowly dough should be firm, let the dough sit for at least 10 minutes. In mean time we can make the filling. To make fillingHeat the oil over low heat add besan and all the spices for filling fennel, coriander, red chili, mango powder, ginger powder, asafetida, and salt. Roast the besan over low heat stirring continuously, for 2-3 minutes until spice mix becomes aromatic. Turn of the heat and take out the mix in a bowl add about 3 tablespoons of warm water and mix it well, this will make sticky dough and let it sit for five minutes. Besan will absorb the water and will become crumbly. To make the KachorisTake the dough and knead it for a minute. Divide the dough in twelve equal parts. Take one part of the dough and with your fingers flatten the edges and make into 3-inch circle. Leaving center little thicker than edges. Mold the dough into a cup and place about 1-1/­­2 teaspoons of filling in the center. Pull the edges of the dough to wrap the dal filling. Proceed to make all 12 balls. Let the filled ball sit for three to four minutes before rolling. Set the filled ball on a flat surface with the seam facing up. Roll it pressing with your palm evenly, in about three inches in diameter. Heat the oil in frying pan over medium heat frying pan should have about one inch of oil. To check if oil is ready put a little piece of dough in the oil. Dough should sizzle and come up very slow. Fry them on medium-low heat. After they start to puff, slowly turn them over. Fry until golden-brown on both sides. This should take about five minutes. If the kachoris are fried on high heat, they will get soft and will not be crispy. NotesKachories can be stored for at least a week in an airtight container. If kachories get soft warm up the kachoris in an oven on 200-degree F for about 7 to 10 minutes, this will bring back the freshness and crispness. Serving Suggestion: Serve the Khasta Kchories plain, or with tamarind chutney and yogurt as chaat, or serve the kachories as main meal and serve them with aloo dum, Boondi Raita The post Khasta Kachori Besan appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Basil Pesto Sauce (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Basil Pesto Sauce .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } Lately pesto has become one of my favorite condiments to keep. Basil Pesto is an Italian delicacy. It is super easy to make, and you can use it in so many ways, making variations of dishes. My grandkids enjoy pesto pasta, my son's favorite is making pesto sandwiches, and I like salad and roasted vegetables with pesto. Pesto has a vibrant color and brightens up any dish you make. Basil is a very aromatic herb. I have basil plants in my backyard. Because basil is the main ingredient for this recipe, I am always prepared. This is also vegan and gluten free recipe.

Zucchini Lentil Pakoras

February 25 2021 Manjula's kitchen 

Zucchini Lentil Pakoras (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Zucchini Lentil Pakoras .wprm-recipe-rating .wprm-rating-star.wprm-rating-star-full svg * { fill: #343434; } As pakoras are one of the most welcoming snacks all over India. It is a popular street food. Everyone has their own favorites and there are countless recipes. Pakoras are a very comforting snack especially when it is cold, and it is raining. Here, we are experiencing both and I am wishing for pakoras with a hot cup of chai, blanket and a good TV show or movie. In a particular magazine, I saw a fusion pakora recipe. Instead of using traditional beasn batter, the chef had used red lentil batter. Several times, I have used moong dal batter, but I never even thought about using red lentil. I was ready to give it a try with another pakora recipe using lentil batter. I made some changes and added chopped ginger that added a nice kick to the pakoras. They turned out to be mouthwatering appetizers: crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. These pakoras are addicting! These work as a tasty pairing with your afternoon tea or a spicy delicious snack before any meal. These pakoras have a different crispness but are very delightful. Give these pakoras a try and enjoy! These Pakoras are also vegan and gluten-free. This recipe will serve 4. Course Appetizer Cuisine Indian Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 15 minutes Total Time 25 minutes Servings 4 people Ingredients1 cup red lentils washed masoor dal 1 zucchini medium sized, cut into thick rounds 2 Tbsp green chili chopped 2 Tbsp ginger finely chopped 2 Tbsp cilantro chopped 1 1/­­2 tsp salt adjust to taste 1/­­2 tsp red chili powder Pinch of baking soda 2 Tbsp corn starch InstructionsSoak red lentil at least for 1hours or more. Pet dry zucchini slices and keep aside. Blend dal to smooth batter, using just enough water needed to blend. To make Pakora batter add corn starch, salt, chili powder and salt together, mix it well, whipping for few seconds. Add all the other ingredients to the batter, ginger, green chili, cilantro and mix all the ingredient well. Batter should be consistency of pancake mix, if needed add little water. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. The frying pan should have about 1 inch of oil. To check if the oil is ready, put one drop of batter in the oil. The batter should come up but not change color right away. Dip the zucchini slices into the batter one at a time, making sure it is covered by the batter completely. Then, slowly drop into the frying pan. Fry the pakoras in small batches, not overlapping. The pakoras will take about 4-5 minutes to cook. Turn them occasionally. Fry the pakoras until both sides are golden brown. If the oil is too hot, the pakoras will brown too fast and not get crispy. Left over batter, place about one tablespoon of batter into the oil. Fry the pakoras in small batches until golden-brown. The crispy, delicious pakoras are now ready to serve. I like to serve these both pakoras side by side. NotesServing Suggestions - Serve with Peanut chutney, Rhubarb Chutney, Mint Chutney - my favorite is taking 1 tablespoon mint chutney and mix with 1/­­4 cup of yogurt.
