My love for Indian food started in high school, and one of the first few dishes I ate were vegetable Pakoras - basically fried veggies (for those who are familiar with Japanese Food, it’s like the tempura of India). These are super easy to make, and are a great appetizer. Even if you’re not a fan of Indian spices, these are super mild….not to mention this recipe is also gluten free!
Crunchy Deep Fried Broccoli Pakoras with bold Indian Spices
Total Time: Serving Size:
- 16 oz Frozen Broccoli Florets (Thawed)
- 1/2 tsps Coriander
- 1 tsps Salt
- 1/2 tsps Turmeric
- 1/2 tsps Chili Powder
- 1/2 tsps Garam Masala
- 2 minced Garlic Cloves
- 3/4 Cups Water
- 1 Cups Chickpea Flour
- In a large bowl, combine Chickpea Flour, Crushed Garlic, and all the spices. Mix together thoroughluy.
- Add in the water until it forms a batter. Dip the broccoli florets into the batter. Meanwhile heat up your deep fryer to 350 degrees. From the batter, drop the florets directly into the fryer and fry til a nice golden brown color. *don't add too many at a time, you don't want them to start sticking together!
- Once a medium golden brown, remove the florets from the oil and set on a drying rack so that any excess oil can drip off. Sprinkle with a little salt while they're still hot!
