Vegetable pakoras are a popular snack across India and Pakistan that is sold by street vendors and in restaurants. Depending on where you get your vegetable pakoras from a wide range of vegetables can be used.
I like to use onions, bell peppers, carrots, potatoes, and spinach. However, it is up to personal preference.
I know not everyone is a fan of vegetable pakoras and likes the classic aloo pakora, so I even have a recipe for that. Some people like plain onion pakoras, otherwise known as onion bhajis. For meat lovers, I have a chicken pakora recipe. I pretty much have a recipe for everyone on this website!
I love this vegetable pakora recipe because if I have a lot of vegetables that are close to going off then I can simply whip a batch of these delicious vegetable pakoras. You can use so many different vegetables in this recipe.
I know I haven’t used them, but cabbage, green beans, and EVEN eggplants are also a delicious addition to this recipe.
The best thing about this recipe is that there is no marination time. You do not want to leave this matter to rest. It is very important that you make this batter just as you are ready to fry.
If you leave it to rest, then you will end up with a watery batter as the vegetables will end up releasing water. This will prevent the pakoras from becoming crispy.
Depending on the veggies you use you will need to cut them in a certain way. Certain vegetables cook slower than others, such as potatoes, so will need to be sliced thinner to ensure all the vegetables cook evenly.
Vegetable pakoras are a classic Indian party food that no one can resist. A crisp fried snack made with gram flour, a variety of vegetables, and spices.
These easy vegetable pakoras are so simple to make, a staple for all those unannounced guests that seem to arrive at the door.
Vegetable pakoras are cooked in minutes and every bite is super crunchy and extra crispy. A deep-fried snack that tastes so tasty and is extremely addictive with a delicious aroma.
This basic vegetable pakora recipe is perfect and best served with a spicy chilli sauce or mint yoghurt chutney.
