DIRECTIONS

  • 1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a big bowl.
  • Add water very slowly to the above mixture of dry ingredients and mix well to prepare a thick paste.
  • In the meantime, heat oil in a skillet on medium flame.
  • De-seed both the green capsicums (bell peppers) and slice lengthwise.
  • Now wash and peel the potatoes and cut in rounds.
  • Dip the sliced bell peppers and the potato rounds in the prepared batter.
  • Allow to coat well on either side. Note: The rice flour addition makes your capsicum and potato pakoras more crispy.
  • Now one by one, gently put the sliced and coated with masala bell peppers and potato rounds into the oil.
  • Deep fry on either side for 2 minutes until golden brown.
  • Drain on a clean kitchen paper towel to get rid of the excess oil.
  • Serve hot with tomato ketchup or green chutney on the side and a cup of hot masala tea.
  • Enjoy this as a snack on a rainy day and think of me!
