  1. The pakodas look really enticing. Very beautifully done and captured. Now that the monsoons are here, the evenings especially those of the weekends call for such pakodas … sitting beside the balcony and watching the rains while sipping on hot tea and such pakodas…

  2. Anardana crushed n cumin seeds crushed will enhance the test. as far the other pakodas skin the potatoes, cut them thin in round pieces not too thin, wash n keep aside with a pinch of salt, Brinjal or gobi also same way. long chillies slit n put dry mango powder n pinch of salt inside its stomach, keep aside, take 1 full cup of besan, beat it dry with fingers to break the lumps, mix salt as per taste considering u have already put salt in aloo,brinjal,gobi n mirchi, now put 1 tbsp. of hot oil in besan n mix it with a pinch of baking soda n red chilli powder, mix water n beat it thoroughly to make medium thick batter,put kadai on med gas with 1 cup of oil,when heated dip the aloo in batter n put in the already heated kadai fry till golden brown, serve hot with onion,corriender, mint, salt chilli n lime juice mixed green chutney

  3. I read in some book the same recepie with boiled potatoes. Which one is original?

  4. plz advise how we’re going to use dry pomogranete seeds..i mean we need to crush it and then use or just as it is??? Secondly, how we’re using Cumin seeds/coriander seeds crushing or in powder form or as it is…
    Hope u will reply and answer my query.

    have a nice day.. Cheers!!

    • not sure abt the anaardana, but the dhania seeds are best when they are half-crushed – they make the pakora even crunchier…love these – part of my child-hood and teen life…try to make them whenever i can! enjoy….
