Recipe - Oil Free Pakoras (Vegan)

Want to be healthy and still eat Pakoras? Well now you can have your pakora and eat it too!

1 cup mixed chopped vegetables (you can use cabbage, onions, carrots or any vegetables of your choice)
½ cup besan
spices of your choice – ginger, garlic, chillies, red chili powder, whole dhania
¼ tsp turmeric
salt to taste
minced fresh coriander
water as needed to make the blend thick and sticky – just slightly thicker than normally used for pakoras

Mix all the ingredients and make small 1 inch balls and put in a steamer. Steam till done (if you put a fork in, it will come off clean or the pakora does not stick to the steamer and can be easily moved)
Take them out of the steamer and pop them in the oven at 200C for a short time till outer crust is brown.
Serves 3-4

  1. Pakoras are one of the top most snacs in my country specially in winters and ramadan. But i am always conscious of weight gain because of the fats and thanks to you for this baked recipe.
