Vegetable Pakora Recipe | How to Make Crispy Street Style Vegetable Pakoda at home

Vegetable Pakora Recipe | Street Style Vegetable Pakoda at home | Mixed vegetable pakora | These crispy vegetable fritters are made from gram flour or besan and mix of vegetables along with flavorful spices.

To make pakoras extra crisp I added some rice flour along with besan in this recipe. Also adding spinach gives extra crispness and texture to these pakoras. In this mixed vegetable pakora recipe I have also used crushed peanuts to give extra crunch.

Pakora is a famous Indian snack around the world. You can find different variants of pakoras from different regions. For example, north Indian pakoras are very different from south Indian pakoras. Also they are so versatile, that by changing the ingredients just a little you can make a whole new pakoda for yourself. If you add potato it becomes potato pakora, add onion it becomes onion pakora, add spinach and it turns into crispy spinach pakora. But mostly the basics of making pakoras remains the same. For most of the pakoras you need to first make a batter. For making perfect batter, just add spices and water to gram flour or besan and make a smooth and lump free batter. Along with basic spices carom seeds, asafetida,  ginger garlic paste and kasoori methi can also be added to give extra kick.

Shilpi's Quick Tip:
For extra crispness, you can also double fry pakoras. Just make sure that you cook them 70-80% first time, give them some rest and fry again in hot oil just before serving.

  • Hi Shilpi, Thank you so much for your tip about rice flour – such a useful ingredient! I’ve recently been making mazagran, traditional French individual filled potato pies and I had trouble with the potato sticking to the board and rolling pin until I discovered the wonders of rice flour! I will be making your pakoras – they look delicious! All the very best from sunny Normandie, Sue
