Notes of veg pakora. 1. Add the besan and rice flour. They not only help in binding together all the ingredients but also, gives a crispy texture on frying. 2. Use water just enough to coat all the ingredients this also helps in making crispy veg pakora. If you mistakenly add more water and the pakora batter has turned runny then add besan or sooji to thicken the batter again. 3. Maintain the temperature of oil. Very high heat browns the veg pakora from outside very fast and the inside remains uncooked. If you let the temperature too low then they will turn greasy. 4. Drop spoonful of the mixture using your fingers and deep-fry a few veg pakora at a time on a medium flame. If you deep-fry all of them together then it will reduce the temperature of oil very quickly and result in uneven deep frying.
The combination of vegetables too is really wonderful, as they all have a good flavour and juicy crunch in them. Serve the pakoras immediately after preparation with chutneys and ketchup.
