How to make Methi Pakoras Recipe
To begin making the Methi Pakoras, sieve both the flours-besan & rice flour together with salt. Add a ladle of hot oil (heated separately for 1 minute) and gently mix with a spoon. Now add the methi leaves, salt, red chilli powder, hing, turmeric powder, ajwain and coriander seeds and mix well.
Methi leaves would leave out water in 2-3 mins. Add water very slowly and make a thick batter. Once it is done, adjust the spice and salt according to your taste.
Pour the rest of the oil in a pan on medium flame. Once it is hot enough, use a greased spoon or wet hands to drop small pakoras (or bite sized pieces) into the hot oil. Be sure not to overcrowd the frying pan (or kadai).
Fry on medium heat turning the batch over in the oil occasionally. Fry till golden brown and drain the pakoras on the kitchen towel.
Fry the rest of the pakoras similarly.
“People who love to eat are always the best people.” – Julia Child . I believe in this completely. Eating healthy (Egg free and completely vegetarian) is a way of life at home and having a foodie spouse who loves to cook and create new dishes also helps :) Clean flavours, seasonal foods, sugar free / fat free /low cal recipes and processed-food free diets rule the roost at my kitchen :) My family gives me the best feedback to my cooking, and watching them tuck into a healthy plate gives me inspiration to cook on..
