Vegetable pakora recipe, How to make pakora

Vegetable pakora is a crispy and delicious deep fried snack made with veggies like cabbage, carrot, capsicum and onion along with gram flour, rice flour and basic spices. This simple and quick to make South Indian style pakora is a little healthy version of regular onion pakoda. This pakora can be served with hot chai/ coffee. As soon as the pakoda mixture is prepared make pakoda immediately as the batter will be become watery later and wont yield in crispy pakoda. I have added vegetables that cook easily so if you wish to add any other veggies, use only those that cook quickly. So let’s get to the making!
