These are a traditional Indian Snack, in the UK they are a popular fast food snack, they are quick and simple to make, they are great dipped in you curry.



  • 250g (1/2lb) Chickpea Flour
  • 125g (5oz) Onions (chopped)
  • 250ml (1 Cup) Milk
  • 125ml (1/2 Cup) Water
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 Chillies (Finely Chopped)
  • 2 tsp Coriander (Ground)
  • 1 tsp Cumin (Ground)
  • 1 tsp Turmeric (Ground)
  • 500ml (1 Pint) Sunflower Oil

Cooking Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a deep heavy-based frying pan until a breadcrumb sizzles and turns brown when dropped into it.
  2. Place all the ingredients, except the oil, into a bowl and mix well, then carefully drop teaspoon-sized balls of the batter in to the hot oil.
  3. Fry until browned and repeat until the batter is used up, you can cook a few at a time.

You can always add some extra vegetables to the Pakora batter, I have used part boiled potatoes, peas,  finely cut spinach, courgette, sweet potatoes, sweet corn etc, I  let my imagination run riot and often try things I have found in the freezer on leftovers from the fridge, Pakora is quick and simple to make, so mistakes are quickly be replaced?
