Potato & Onion Pakoras

Irish Potato & Onion Pakoras Recipe
Per Serving %RI

Method

Sift the gram flour and the self-raising flour into a bowl. Add the chilli powder, garam masala and tandoori masala powder(if using) and stir well to combine.

Add the lemon juice, then gradually add enough water to form a smooth batter. Leave aside for 10-15 minutes.

Add all of the remaining ingredients except the sunflower oil to the batter mixture and mix well to coat the potatoes and onions.

Heat the oil in a suitable deep frying pan until a breadcrumb sizzles and turns brown when dropped into it. (CAUTION: hot oil can be extremely dangerous. Do not leave unattended.)

Carefully lower tablespoons of the batter mixture in batches into the oil (avoid splashes) and fry for 5-6 minutes, or until the pakoras are crisp and golden-brown and the vegetables have cooked through. Serve immediately with various chutneys of your choice.
