    That's good but samosas are not pakoras and why go to all the expense of buying the special flour, grinding up the veggies etc when you can buy excellent ones for prob the same price. After all those soup ads on t' telly encourage you to cheat when the in laws are coming round.:policeman:;)

    without a doubt, I would cheat and buy them, but, the local Indian take away doesn't sell pakora :err: would you beleive that!!

    I bought the flour and some different spices and gave it a go last night, it was OK, but nowt special. Just need to keep trying

    Sorry not tried the recipe for pakoras in my cook book, but can recommend this recipe for onion bhajis...less ingredients than the pakoras same sort of thing

     

    150g besan flour ( you can also use gram or chickpea flour)

    1tsp salt

    pinch of bicarb

    1 tbsp ground rice

    2tsps ground cumin

    2tsps ground coriander

    1 tsp chilli powder

    1-2 fresh green chillies finely chopped

    2 large onions sliced into half rings and separated

    200ml water

    oil for deep frying

    mix all dry ingredients, add onions, gradually add water until soft but thick batter forms..heat oil to 160-180 add about tablespoon of mixture then lower heat so bhajis can cook all the way through...enjoy

     

    hope this helps

    Jo :)

    I use an adapted onion bhajee recipe -

     

    4 medium sized onions

    8oz gram flour

    1 tsp of salt (recipe calls for 4 tsps - but I think that is too much)

    2 tbsps of mint sauce - i use jelly

    1 tsp of garam masala

    1 tsp of finely chopped green coriander

    water to turn mix into a stiff batter

    oil for frying.

     

    Makes great bhajees, but if you substitute the onions for chicken tikka (or whatever you like in your pakoras) I think it makes good pakoras too :-)
