Vegetable Pakoras

Spicily seasoned for a bite-sized treat with a little more – well, bite – these mini mouthfuls can be baked in our Silicone Cake Pop Mould or ‘fried’ in Gourmet Gadgetry’s Sweet Snack Maker.

Ingredients

  • 100g potato, peeled and chopped
  • 100g gram flour
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 40ml water

Instructions

 

  1. Parboil the chopped potato in a small saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to the boil then turn down the heat and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Sieve the gram flour into a mixing bowl. Add the potato, onion, garlic, chillies, garam masala, turmeric and salt and mix well. Gradually add the water and mix to a thick dough.
  3. If you’re using our Silicone Cake Pop Mould, fill each little mould with a teaspoon of mixture and bake in the oven at 180˚C/Gas 4 for approx. 15 minutes or until golden and well-risen.
  4. To ‘fry’ using the Sweet Snack Maker, lightly grease the upper and lower cake pop plates and fill each mould with a heaped teaspoon of mixture. Close the lid and cook for 7-8 minutes until golden and cooked through, following the machine’s instructions. Turn off the machine and allow the pakoras to cool for a minute before removing.
