Ingredients
Mint Chutney
Instructions
  1. Sift gram flour into a mixing bowl. Add enough warm water to form batter. Let batter rest for 30 minutes. If the mixture thickens on resting, add more water.
  2. Add all other ingredients except oil and mix well.
  3. Dip chopped vegetables in the batter.
  4. Heat oil in pot. Drop spoonfuls of vegetable batter into hot oil. Fry for one minute until fritter holds its shape. Reduce heat to medium and fry until half cooked. Remove and cool completely.
  5. Before serving, reheat oil and deep-fry again over moderately high heat until brown. Double-frying is essential for crispy pakoras.
  6. Sprinkle with chaat masala.
  7. Blend the rest of the ingredients to make mint chutney. Serve with the pakoras.
