Pro tips for peanut pakoda. 1. Drop a spoonful of the mixture using your fingers into the hot oil. Be careful while doing this as the oil might splutter. Try frying only 1 pakoda to begin with. If it disintegrates then add 1 more tbsp of besan.  2. Deep-fry a few pakoras at a time on a medium flame till they are evenly cooked till golden brown in colour. It is very important to fry the pakodas in batches. If you overcrowd the pan, the temperature of oil will change drastically and result in uneven cooking. 3. Stir the pakoras with a slotted spoon while frying to see that they get evenly cooked. 4. Roasted peanuts add a nice crunch and flavor to pakoras. 5. Besan helps bind the pakora. .6 Adding baking soda will make the pakora soft.
