  • 2-3 – Medium-sized boiled potatoes
  • ⅓ cup – Besan
  • 1 cup – Rice flour
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander leaves (chopped)
  • 1-2 tbsp – Soaked chana dal
  • 4 tbsp – Onion
  • ½ inch – Ginger
  • 1-2 – Chopped green chillis
  • 1 tsp – Cumin seeds or jeera
  • Oil for deep frying


*In a bowl, mash boiled potatoes and add soaked chana dal along with besan. Mix well.

*Then add a cup of rice flour along with onion, green chillis and ginger. Add jeera and salt as per your taste.

*Lastly, add chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Now heat a thick base pan and add oil (enough to deep-fry the pakoras).

*Make small balls of the mix and drop them in the oil; 5-6 at a time.

*Deep fry each side for 2 minutes and then slowly turn and fry the other side.

*Transfer it to a napkin to soak extra oil. Serve it with dips of your choice or freshly made coriander chutney. In fact, you can also serve it with this immunity-boosting chutney which is good for those suffering from constipation and blood sugar.
