Gram Flour Fritters (Baysan k Pakoray )

Pakoray|Gram flour pakoras| Besan k pakoray| Aalo| Pyaaz,appetizers, Gram flour,

Gram flour recipes are very popular in Asian countries. Origin is actually Utar pardesh. I have noticed people from some countries don't know about gram flour. It is a flour which is made from ground chick peas :) 

Pakora is basically a mixture of some vegetables mixed in gram flour (Baysin in urdu) and deeply fried. Mostly I love to have it on a rainy day accompanied with hot teaa.. <3 Everyone no matter at which age they are love them :P

Before I have introduced u to simple Onion Fritters and Veggie Pakoras. Here is another variety I have discussed :) Hope u will love them. <3. Here is the recipe:


Onion                                                 3-4 sliced finely
Potatoes                                             3-4 (peeled, chopped into cubes)
Salt                                                     2 tsp.
Red chili powder                                2 1/2 tsp.
Garlic Paste                                         1/2 tsp.
Coriander Leaves                                A bunch, Chopped
Cumin seeds                                       2 tsp.
Coriander seeds (dhanyia)                  2 tsp. crushed
Fenugreek (Maythi) leaves                   Few
Pomegranate seeds (Anaar dana)        1 tsp.
Red chili flakes                                    1/2 tsp.
Gram flour (Baysan)                           10-12 tbsp.
Water                                                  1/2 cup
Oil                                                       For frying 


Mix all of the above ingredients and add water gradually to make a semi thick paste. Make sure it shouldn't be too thin or too thick. Heat oil on medium heat and pour a small scoop of mixture into the oil with hand or a tablespoon. Scoop 5-8 balls of the batter into the oil and let them cook.

Stir them around gradually and take them out when they turn golden brown.

Make sure oil is not too hot, otherwise potatoes will remain raw. Drain on tissue or a paper and serve hot! :)
