As I was in India one month ago, I obviously came back with a few recipes 🙂
One I wanted was those great onion fritters called Pakora that I ate in a restaurant in Kovalam, in the Kerala region.
The name Pakora comes from the sanskrit pakvavaṭa that means : cooked small lump.
Made of vegetables and very often onion only and mixed with different spices, it turns out to be very very nice. And so easy. And not as greasy and heavy as the usual onion fritters.
Let’s check the recipe !
Ingredients, for around 8 fritters,
-1 red onion
-1/8 tsp of turmeric powder
-1/2 tsp of red chili powder
-1/4 tsp garam masala
-1 green chili finely chopped
-1/2 tbsp of coriander leaves chopped
-1/2 cup of chickpea flour
-200g of grounded walnuts
-Water, oil for frying, yogurt to serve.
Slice onion finely (ideally with a mandolin if you have) add salt, turmeric, red chili powder, green chiili and coriander
Add the chickpea flour, mix well, add water little at a time to make a thick batter. Taste and adjust the seasonning.
Heat some oil in a pan, form patties with 2 table spoons and fry 2 min on medium heat on each side till they brown.
