Whenever we make bhajiya in our house it is always a mix, just not one. So putting up this platter for our month long BM theme was easy for me. Though you might not see a very big platter or thali, just enough to serve four of us.

And yes it has everyone’s favourite pakoras. However there were new favourites picked up after this platter like, my husband enjoyed gobi pakora and my son and daughter loved palak pakoda.

Even though the title says 6 different Pakora recipes, that is only because I made 6 different types for this platter. As we could not finish more than this. But if you are looking for more pakora recipes, I have this, Crunchy and yummy Moong dal Pakora, Besan Pakodi/Pakora, left over rice pakoda, Rajasthani Paush Vada and Dudhi Kofta .

One Batter for Pakora

Except for Onion pakora, and one way of palak pakoda, the batter for the remaining pakoras is the same. So all you need to do is make a batter one time and you are sorted. Simply dip it in any veggie of your choice and you have one yummy and delicious fritters.

Few Tips on making and frying Pakora

  • Pakora batter should not be too runny or too thick. 
  • Too runny batter will not coat the vegetables properly and too thick will leave a thick coating. You will feel that you are just eating gram flour.
  • Cook it on slow to medium in the start so that the inside gets cooked.
  • Later you can increase the flame to give it a nice outer crunchy layer.
  • The oil should be hot before you start frying. Cold oil or oil at less temperature will result in the veggies absorbing oil.
  • I have never added oil or any other flour for extra crunch. They are good and crunchy when you follow the above process.

    When I make pakodas it always a mix of all veggies. I usually make with brinjal, potato, plantain, zucchini and of course onion. The whole spinach one is unique and interesting. Very nice. Delicious platter and an irresistible one too.
