Aloo Pakora or Potato Pakora

Pakoras or fritters is a popular fried snack in Pakistan. This particular variant is made using potatoes that are sliced, as thinly as possible, then dipped in a spicy gramflour (besan) batter and fried till golden and crispy. Serve hot with chutney or ketchup.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups gramflour (besan)
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon coriander powder
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • Water, as required
  • 2 potatoes, thinly sliced

Method:

  1. In a large bowl add gramflour (besan), salt, coriander powder, red chili powder, coriander seeds and baking soda.
  2. Add water to make batter. Set aside for at least 30 – 45 minutes.
  3. The batter should be thick enough to make pakoras (fritters). If it is too thin, add a little more gramflour (besan) and if it is too thick add water to fix the consistency.
  4. Wash, peel and thinly slice the potatoes. This can be done using a sharp knife or using a mandolin. Don’t keep the potatoes outside in the air for too long, as they will start browning.
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan, karahi or wok. Dip the sliced potatoes individually into the batter and fry.
  6. Fry the pakoras till golden and crispy on both sides.
  7. Remove on a kitchen towel and serve hot.
  8. Sprinkle chaat masala on the top and serve with chutney or ketchup.
