Easy Kale Pakoras Recipe to be made as a side snack or tea time snack. We loved the kale pakoras they were crisp, yum and healthy at the same time.
recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 2 cups oil for deep frying
  • ½ cup besan flour / gram flour ( i used organic gram flour)
  • 1 bunch of kale leaves (thick stems removed and chopped thin stems and leaves finely)
  • 1 green chili chopped finely
  • ¼th t/s red chili powder
  • ¼th t/s turmeric powder
  • 1 t/s cumin seed powder
  • ¼t/s raw mango powder (amchur)
  • ¼th t/s carom seed (ajwain)
  • a pinch of asofoetida (hing)
  • black salt or salt as per taste
  • ½ t/s cooking soda or baking soda (optional)
  • water for batter
How to make the recipe?
  1. Mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Combine all with your finger. The consistency should be of dosa batter nor too thick nor too thin.
  3. Heat oil in a kadai / vessel with thick base. Once oil is hot pour spoonful of the batter into the hot oil one by one.
  4. Fry few at a time don't cluster with too many. When they are golden color and crisp from both sides.
  5. Remove the pakoras with slotted spoon and place over absorbent napkins.
  6. Fry the rest of batter for pakoras.
  7. Serve the kale pakoras hot with green chutney or sauce or some chilies.
Notes
1. You could add chopped onion.
2. Ensure the consistency is proper else the pakoras would be runny. If the batter is too thin then add some more gram flour. If it's too thick then add little water.
3. If you like pakoras crispy then fry them only when oil is hot.
4. Alter spices as per your preference.
5. If amchur isn't available just add chat masala instead.
