Vegetable Pakoras


These vegetable pakoras are my healthier take on the Indian favourite. They are delicious and so easy, although I confess a little bit messy to make! Worth the effort, though. I love to serve these at parties with a spicy chutney.

You’ll Need (makes 10)

  • 175g gram flour (chickpea flour)
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp dried mint
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Small bunch of coriander (28g), chopped including stalks
  • 200 -220 ml water
  • 1 carrot spiralized
  • 1 sweet potato spiralized
  • 1 large beetroot spiralized on large setting
  • 1 red onion spiralized on large setting
  • Coconut oil for frying


  1. Mix the flour with the dry seasonings, add lemon juice then slowly add in water whisking until you have a batter that coats the back of a spoon, you may not need all the water. Add the coriander and continue to whisk for a few minutes then leave to stand while you prepare your vegetables. Spiral the vegetables into separate bowls
  2. Heat a generous amount of coconut oil in a small frying pan about 1cm deep on medium to high heat, a small piece of batter should sizzle in the oil when its ready.
  3. Take a pinch of each vegetable to make a golfball sized bundle and dipped into the batter, coating all over, this is a messing process and you’ll need to wash your hands between batch frying. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side until crispy and golden

These are delicious served hot with a wedge of lime.
