Oil Free Pakoras

Want to be healthy and still eat Pakoras? Well now you can have your pakora and eat it too!


  • 1 cup mixed chopped vegetables (you can use cabbage, onions, carrots or any vegetables of your choice)
  • ½ cup besan
  • spices of your choice – ginger, garlic, chilies, red chili powder, whole dhania
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • salt to taste
  • minced fresh coriander
  • water as needed to make the blend thick and sticky – just slightly thicker than normally used for pakoras


Mix all the ingredients and make small 1 inch balls and put in a steamer. Steam till done (if you put a fork in, it will come off clean or the pakora does not stick to the steamer and can be easily removed)

Take them out of the steamer and pop them in the oven at 200 degrees C for a short time till outer crust is brown.

Serves 3-4
