Mix Vegetable Pakora

Find me one person who doesn’t like pakoras??!!! ;) Well, I’m definitely a big-time pakora (or any deep-fried munchies) lover. Making salads, gravies/curries, stir-fries every now n then leaves me with some tidbits of veggies… Recently we thought of doing a cleanup of fridge before buying a new stock!!! And it was terrible… I found a small piece of cabbage, a few green beans, 1 carrot n 1/4 zucchini, a couple of broccoli florets n many more things! Now I had 2 options only… One to make that delicious Veg. Jaipuri and the other was to make some healthy (yet unhealthy) snacking thing ;)

Evening snacks are always welcome… A cup of ginger tea and these pakoras!!! <3 Who says you can enjoy pakoras only while its raining… hahaha!!! And yes… I loved it more as KG said it’s crisp and very tasty, more like how he likes at any Indian restaurants <3 What else is needed!!!

SJ’s NOTE:

  • Rice flour makes these pakoras crispy. Instead you can use cornflour too.
  • Adjust the amount of spice according to your taste. You can also replace green chilly with red chilly powder.
