I have made a few types of pakoras before, such as cauliflower pakora, lentil pakora (daali bora) and simple pakoras. The chicken pakora is full of flavour, with a nice and juicy chicken centre. Lovely side dish, really crunchy and super delicious!
- In a bowl, add the chicken, onion, coriander, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, turmeric, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, chilli powder and salt. Mix together well. Cover and leave in fridge for at least 30 mins or until ready to use
- Heat up oil on a gentle medium heat
- Meanwhile, add the corn flour, gram flour and baking powder to your chicken mixture. Try not to add any water as this won't make the pakora as crispy. Mix well to coat the pakora
- Place each chicken piece into the oil and cook until golden brown on the outside. Test one chicken by cutting in half to ensure it has cooked on the inside. Keep the oil on a gentle flame to ensure it has a slow cooking process. Serve warm
Super easy, super flavourful and so delicious! I hope you enjoy.
