  • Peel and cut the carrot in thin julienne sticks.
  • You can also grate the carrot if you prefer.
  • Then place it in a mixing bowl.
  • Trim and finely slice the green beans and add them to the carrot.
  • Set aside.
  • Peel and thinly slice the onion and put it in carrot mix.
  • Chop the coriander leaves and add them to the vegetable mix.
  • Peel and grate the potato.
  • Using a kitchen towel pat the potato to absorb as much as water that comes out of the potato.
  • Then put it in the vegetable mix.
  • Sprinkle the rice flour (if using) over the vegetables.
  • Stir well.
  • Chop the chillies if using then add them to the vegetable mix.
  • You can also use 1 tsp dried chilli flakes or red chilli powder if you prefer.
  • Then add all the spices, i.e. ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric powder, whole cumin seeds, carom seeds (if using) and salt into the vegetable.
  • Stir well.
  • Add the gram flour in mix well and pour the water in and stir the vegetable mix.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan.
  • Make sure it’s hot enough, but not too hot.
  • Test it by throwing a little bit of the gram flour mixture in the pan.
  • It should come to the surface at a slow and steady pace.
  • If it comes up fast it means the oil is too hot and you would want to turn the heat down.
  • Carefully drop a tablespoon of vegetable mixture in the hot oil.
  • You can also use your hand to pick the veggies and place them in the pan.
  • The latter method gives you a bit more control in how much vegetable mixture you want.
  • It also makes the shape of the pakoras thinner and not too bulky. So they fry better.
  • Turn the veggie fritters when they look golden.
  • It takes approximately 7-10 minutes to fry these vegetable pakoras.
