Vegetable Pakoras – An All Time favorite Snack – Perfect For A Rainy Day Or A Cocktail Party!!!

Vegetable Pakoras – kind of fritters, which are yummy with some spice in the batter :). A smack of mint-yogurt dip cools the palate. You can serve with anything u want like sauce, mint chutney, chili sauce etc…. I have tried out with some potatoes, onions, cauliflower, and broccoli. You can also try out with different veggies like sweet potato, broccoli, zucchini etc


1cup besan (gram flour)
3 tablespoons rice flour (optional- its added to get the crispness)
1 tablespoon of coarsely ground coriander powder
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1chopped green chilies (u can adjust according to ur taste)
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Salt adjust to taste
3/4 cup of water (Use water as needed)
Oil to fry
Thin slices of – Potato, onions, broccoli, cauliflower as shown in the below picture.


  • Mix all the dry ingredients together : besan, rice flour, coriander powder, and salt.
  • Add the water slowly to make a smooth batter – batter consistency should be similar to that of a dosa or a pancake batter.
  • Next, add the green chilies and cilantro. Mix well.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. Dip the vegetable slices in the batter one at a time and drop in the frying pan.
  • Fry the pakoras in small batches. Fry them until both sides are golden-brown.
Enjoy your crispy delicious Pakoras with a hot cup of chai or as appetizers.
