How To Make Vegetable Pakoras

Sift both flours into a bowl, spoon in the cayenne pepper and garam masala and combine. Gradually add water, tablespoon by tablespoon, and work to form a batter smooth and thick enough to cling to the back of a spoon. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.

Apart from the oil, tip in the rest of the ingredients, making sure everything is coated. Pour enough sunflower oil in a deep frying pan or wok, and heat until a dropped cumin seed fizzes and swims. Carefully lower in tablespoons of the fritter mix. Work in batches, frying the vegetable pakoras for approximately 3 minutes on each side until they’ve taken on the colour of caramel and the vegetables are cooked through, crispy and light.

Serve with a chutney of choice.
