This makes an excellent pakora batter. I am giving it five stars because my whole family loved it! I made it thin almost like a pancake batter, left out the onions, then dipped sliced eggplant and thinly sliced potatoes into it and deep fried - almost any vegetable would be good, in my opinion. Be liberal with the spices, especially the curry, salt and pepper - where the recipe specifies chili, I used chili powder, and sprinkled the finished product with salt and chili powder hot out of the fryer. I also made a test piece and seasoned the batter accordingly before making the rest of it. This is a definite keeper at my house - thanks bevs!!
