Recipe
1
Wash and peel 250 grams of potatoes. Slice them into thin rounds and keep them in a bowl of water to prevent discoloration.
2
In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup of gram flour (besan), 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon ajwain, a pinch of asafoetida (hing), salt to taste, and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda. Mix well.
3
Gradually add water to the dry mixture and whisk until you get a smooth, thick batter. The consistency should be such that it coats the potato slices well.
4
Heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadai over medium heat. To check if the oil is hot enough, drop a small amount of batter into the oil. If it sizzles and rises to the surface, the oil is ready for frying.
5
Drain the water from the potato slices and pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel.
6
Dip each potato slice into the batter, ensuring it is evenly coated on all sides.
7
Carefully slide the coated potato slices into the hot oil and fry them in batches. Do not overcrowd the pan.
8
Fry the pakoras until they turn golden brown and crispy, turning them occasionally for even cooking.
9
Use a slotted spoon to remove the pakoras from the oil and place them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
10
Serve the aloo pakoras hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
