Pakoras - Low Fat (Baked)



Introduction

I made some Pakoras today, but saved half the batter to try and bake it instead of frying it to save calories and fat. It worked! They may not be quite as crisp, but they're still SO delicious!

Ingredients

    2 cups Chickpea flour (aka - Gram flour, Garbanzo flour)
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 1/2 tsp garam masala or curry powder
    1 tsp cumin
    1/2 tsp turmeric
    1/2 tsp red pepper (opt.)
    1 1/2 tsp dried cilantro (3 tbsp fresh)
    ----
    1/2 head small cauliflower, chopped into bite-size pieces
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1/3 cup peas (fresh/frozen/canned)
    1 medium carrot, grated
    1 small potato, grated
    Olive oil, to grease baking sheet

Directions

Preheat oven to 500F.

In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients (down to the dashes in the ingredient list). Stir in enough water to create a batter, almost pancake-batter consistency, but a little thicker. It took me about 1 1/4 cups of water.

Prepare veggies, and then dump them all into the
batter, mixing to coat well.

Using a spoon, take scoops of battered veggies and drop onto well oiled baking sheet - like when making drop cookies.

Bake for 8 minutes, then flip and bake another 10 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve with 'Raita' or an Indian tomato sauce.

Makes about 50 pakoras; a serving is 5 pakoras.
