Ingredients

  • 1 red onion, julienned
  • 1 green bell pepper, julienned
  • 3 small potatoes (14 oz or 400 g), peeled and grated
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro , chopped
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne flakes (optional)
  • 3/4 cup chickpea flour (90 g)
  • 1/2 cup water (125 ml)
  • Extra virgin olive oil to taste

Instructions

  1. I used a box grater to grate the potatoes, but feel free to julienne them into thin strips if you want.
  2. Add the veggies, cilantro and spices to a large mixing bowl and stir.
  3. Then add the chickpea flour and water and mix until well combined. I prefer to use my hands, but it’s up to you.
  4. Heat some oil in a skillet and drop in spoonfuls of the mixture. Cook over medium-high heat until golden brown (about 2 to 3 minutes on each side).
  5. Serve immediately with some green chutney or your favorite sauce.
  6. Keep leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for 5 to 7 days.

Notes

  • Feel free to use any veggies, herbs and spices you want.
  • If you don’t like spicy food, omit the cayenne flakes or add less. Garam masala is also spicy, so keep that in mind.
  • I haven’t made this recipe with no oil, but I think it should work if you bake the pakoras instead of frying them.
