Pakora or fritters is one of the most common snack in Indian cuisine. Traditionally gram flour or besan batter is used for coating vegetables and then deep fried in oil. Most famous are onion pakoras, spinach pakora and mix veg pakoras and aloo pakoras. In my blog you can also find variety of other pakoras which are very different, easy and quick. here are few:

Aloo Pakoda

1. Rice pakora or rice fritters: crisp, spicy pakoras made with left over rice.
2. Sooji pakora: super quick and super yum pakoras made with rava and ingredients available at home.
3. Chinese pakoda: pakoda made with cabbage and Chinese sauces .
4. Maida bhaijia: really my friends got confused whether it;s dal of maida pakora. A must try recipe!!

Talking about today’s aloo ke pakore recipe, it is very different from traditional pakora recipe. here I have marinaded the potatoes first so that they don’t taste blend in pakoras. Also I have added some rice flour to the batter which gives aloo pakoras extra crispness. Baking soda  added to get that fluffy texture. If you don’t have it add eno powder or baking powder instead.

I like to serve these pakoras with spicy green coriander chutney or coconut chutney. Do try it once and I am sure you will love this recipe. Do share your feedback and I will love to read them.
