• 300g gram flour
  • 450g potatoes
  • 60g onions, chopped
  • 10g garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • 5g red chilli powder
  • 5g ground cumin
  • 30g tomato ketchup
  • 30g natural yoghurt
  • 10g fresh coriander chopped
  • 200ml water
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • STEP 1
    Peel the potatoes and cut them into small dice. Put the potatoes and chopped onions in a large bowl.
  • STEP 2
    Add the garam masala, gram flour, salt, chilli powder and ground cumin and mix well until the flour is distributed evenly and a rough paste is formed.
  • STEP 3
    Add the tomato ketchup, yoghurt and coriander and mix well again.
  • STEP 4
    Now add water until the mixture just holds its consistency when dripping off the back of the spoon.
  • STEP 5
    Heat the vegetable oil. To judge whether the oil is hot enough, put a piece of bread in and, if it rises to the surface immediately, the oil is ready.
  • STEP 6
    Cook the pakoras in batches By dropping one tablespoon of the mixture at a time into the hot oil. When the pakoras bob up to the surface, push them down gently with slotted spoon.
  • STEP 7
    Cook the Pakoras until they turn a dark brown. Remove the pakoras from the oil, gently shaking off the excess oil before serving.
