Mixed Vegetable Pakoras

Pakoras are batter-coated fried vegetables. Serve them with brown rice and your favorite low-sugar chutney to make a simple vegetarian meal. These pakoras are made with chickpea flour, which is sometimes called besan. It’s easy to order online if your local store doesn’t carry it, and it’s a great product to play with in your cooking.


  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups cauliflower, finely chopped
  • 5 baby yellow potatoes, thinly sliced
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. garam masala
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. minced cilantro
  • 1½ cups chickpea flour
  • 1 cup water


  1. Toss onion, cauliflower, and potato with all spices, including garlic and cilantro.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together chickpea flour and water until you have a pancake-like batter. Pour over vegetables and toss to coat.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Add the coated vegetables incrementally, working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Reduce heat to low and cook all pieces, turning as needed, until cooked (2-3 minutes per side). Repeat until all vegetables are cooked and serve hot.
