Serves: 4
  • Semolina – 1 cup (180 gms )
  • Whisked curd- ¾ cup
  • Capsicum- ½ cup ( Finely chopped )
  • Cauliflower – ½ cup ( Finely chopped )
  • Green Coriander- 2 to 3 tbsp (finely chopped)
  • Ginger – ½ inch piece (finely chopped)
  • Green chili – 2 to 3 (finely chopped)
  • Salt- ¾ tsp (or to taste)
  • Baking Soda – Less than ¼ tsp
  • Oil – for frying
  1. Chop the veggies.
  2. Take 1 cup semolina and transfer it to a big mixing bowl. Add ¾ cup whisked curd. Mix well. Add little water to it. Keep the batter little thin as semolina puffs up.
  3. Once done with making batter mix veggies and spices to it.
  4. Add ½ cup finely chopped bell peppers, ½ cup finely chopped cauliflower, 2 to 3 tbsp finely chopped green coriander, ½ inch ginger baton (finely chopped), 2 to 3 green chili (finely chopped), ¾ tsp salt or to taste and mix everything really well. If the batter appears little thick so add some water and keep aside for 5 minutes to set. For making this much batter we have used more than half cup of water. After 5 minutes add less than ¼ tsp baking soda and mix well.
  5. Heat enough oil for frying the pakoras. Check if the oil is sufficiently hot. Bring your hand over the wok and you will feel the warmth. Once the oil is rightly hot. Drop one pakora first to check. Drop more pakoras. You can keep the size of pakoras big or small as per your preference. Keep the flame medium.
  6. When pakoras slightly brown from beneath, flip the sides and continue frying until they get golden brown in color from all sides.Pakoras have turned golden brown, drain them out.Hold the ladle on the edge of the wok like this so that excess oil drains back to the wok.Place the fried pakoras over a plate. Similarly fry remaining pakoras as well.
