Ingredients for aloo pakora
- 250 gm potato
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cornflour
- 2 tablespoons chickpea flour (besan)
- ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 tablespoon rice flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- 1 cup oil
- 1 cup of warm water
Peel the potatoes and make thin slices with the vegetable cutter. Wash the potato slices. Add salt to the potato and keep aside.
Mix chickpea flour, cornflour, rice flour, and baking powder altogether gently. Mix chili powder, turmeric powder, and salt into the flour mixture. Add warm water to the flour mixture and make a thick batter with the fork. Then add 1 tbsp oil to the batter. Let the batter rest for 30 -40 minutes for a better result.
Heat up oil in a deep non-stick pan on the burner over medium heat. Try to use a deep fryer for frying, this is very healthy and useful for frying. Dip all potato slices in the batter and put them gently in hot oil. Put 6-7 potato slices into the oil or as per the size of your frying pan. Fry the pakora until the color is golden and crispy. Fry all pakora in this way. Take out the potato pakora in a colander so that extra oil can remove. Transfer the pakora to a paper-lined tray.
Serve the pakora in a serving dish and potato (Aloo) pakora is ready; serve as a snack with tomato ketchup or mint chutney.
