Vegetable Baked Pakoras – “Indian must have” with spicy papaya chutney
Vegetable Baked Pakoras – Quick and easy. Okay Indian food is definitely one of my favourite comfort foods! Last week we already posted a recipe for my all time classic- Daal. Naan and Raita, as well as the Papaya Chutney, are all already on the blog. Soon there will be no excuse to be able to cook a whole indian feast anymore 😉
That was exactly what we did last night. It is just too good, although the whole house, as well as our hair and skin, was smelling like indian spices the whole day. Pakoras are definitely a must have when it comes to a proper Indian feast. They come in all different types like with potatoes, eggplant, paneer or any other kind of vegetabels. The amazing thing about pakoras is the spicy mostly fried chickpea dough covering something that will basically melt down in your mouth! Its just beautiful:)
I am very excited to make paneer (Indian homemade cheese) from fresh whole fat milk from a farmer as soon as I am back in Germany again. But for now: Enjoy this baked pakoras recipe.
How You do it:
- Preheat the oven to around 200°
- Wash your cauliflower and the zucchini and try it properly
- Cut the zucchini into half a fingernail thin slices (one of those strange descriptions again)
- Break the cauliflower into the little roses, leave the really small ones and cut the bigger roses into the same slices as the zucchini
- Meanwhile, mix the batter by adding the egg or 2 tbsp water and 1 tbsp soaked flaxseed (flaxseed egg) , chickpea flour, milk, baking powder, turmeric, coriander, curry, salt and cumin. Mix the batter until you receive a smooth texture. Add more flour or water if necessary.
- Start with covering the zucchini and the cauliflower evenly with the batter. They should be fully covered but not trip the batter.
- Heat coconut oil in the fryer (we are using the Tefal fryer from the following link because this one is frying perfectly crispy with only 3 % Fat used) Get yourself the with our This Link: TEFAL Actifry with 50 % Truefoodsblog Discount on the Product now!
Fry the with Dough covered Pakoras until golden and crusty.
- Alternatively, Place them on a baking sheet and let them bake for around 20 min until they start to get golden brown.
Let them cool slightly and serve it either as a snack or a side dish to a big beuatiful indian feast. We served it with some selfmade Papaya chutney and raita and it was simply delicious !
