                         Vegetable Pakora recipe


Vegetable Pakora are delicious crispy fried snack made from chickpea flour as a main ingredients and many supporting ingredients like spinach, potatoes, onions, cilantro, green chilli, cottage cheese and spices. I have shared different varieties of Pakora in my previous posts, like Cottage cheese Pakora, potato spinach Pakora, Multigrain Pakora and Mirchi bada.

Rainy season is about to arrive and Pakoras are favorite tea-time  snack of Indians.Today, I am sharing the recipe of Vegetable Pakora. I have used mix vegetables in this recipe. You can use seasonal vegetables in this recipe.

Great way to push nutrition into the people who don,t eat vegetables. You can use the vegetables either in large chunks or chopped. For deep fry, you can use a good quality light refined oil. Wrap them in a tissue paper or news paper before serving, so that extra oil is absorbed.

These Pakoras tastes great with green chutney and tomato ketchup. Some people also love to have it with Tamarind chutney. So, let us start the recipe of Vegetable Pakoras.
