Pakora recipe - Pakora is the most consumed and popular snack in Pakistan. Pakoras are basically fried fritters that are made with gram flour, mixed vegetables, chili powder, cilantro, onion, salt, green chilies, and baking powder. To make a perfect Pakora recipe, you need to prepare the batter with the ingredients of decent consistency adding water. A spoon of batter is deep fried in hot oil. Pakora recipe method is accurately listed online on this page online. Pakora is a must Iftar item on every dining table during Ramadan. You can even serve it to guests or family at evening tea. Serve the Pakora hot with green chutney or tomato sauce. Hide


2 cups (250g / 8.8 oz) Besan (also known as: Chickpea Flour or Gram Flour)

1 tablespoon crushed red pepper

¾ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon baking powder

1 green chilii pepper, sliced

½ cup Cilantro leaves, chopped

1 yellow onion, sliced into 1/8-inch half moons (should look like this)

1 cup luke-warm water

Sunflower oil (or any neutral oil like vegetable, safflower, canola, etc.), for deep frying


Fill an 8-inch cast-iron skillet half-way up with oil. Heat the oil to 360-375ºF.

In a large bowl, mix together the besan, red chili flakes, salt, baking powder, sliced chilli pepper, cilantro, and sliced onion.

Slowly add in the water, while mixing with a wooden spoon or your hands. Vigorously mix for a couple of seconds. The batter should be thick, almost like heavy (double) cream and there should be air bubbles throughout.

Once the oil is heated, carefully place in heaping tablespoonfuls of batter into the hot oil. Try not to overcrowd the oil because it will result in greasy pakoras. Fry until the pakoras are a pecan-brown. Drain on a cooling rack placed over a cookie sheet.

Repeat with the remainder of the batter.

Serve right away, and enjoy.
