Mix veg pakora is a simple and easy snack. It is moist and soft on inside and crisp outside, unlike other pakora’s. veg pakora is made with simple and basic ingredients that are easily available in every household.

The burst of flavours and the crackling mouth-feel of pakoras are simply inspiring, and boost our appetites to top gear. Here is one such awesome veg pakora made with a mix of vegetables held together with besan and spiced up with chillies and spice powders.

Looking for a quick and easy evening snack or something to eat with a piping hot cup of tea on a rainy day? Pakoras are an ideal choice. Pakora also known as pakoda, pakodi, bhaji, bhajiya is originated from India. veg pakora is a deep fried snack, basically a fritter. veg pakora is found in restaurants and also sold by food vendors on the streets. mix vegetable pakora is a famous Indian street food, found all over.

Pakora is made by choosing a main ingredient like onion, potato, spinach, eggplant, cauliflower, corn etc. which is then dipped in Bengal gram batter and deep fried.

I usually make Punjabi style mix veg pakora for my father-in law and husband for evening snack, they are a big fan of veg pakoda’s and they have it with a cup of tea, it is a perfect combo. I also make it when last minute guests walk in as it is simple, easy and quick but also very mouth-watering and delicious and we can bet your guests would love it!!

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.

You can also try other pakora recipes like Urad Dal and Onion Pakodas or Moong Dal Pakoda.
