Suggestion

  • when you have guests, and you need a big amount of pakora, put them meanwhile into the oven on 80°C on a tray with household paper, spread them nicely, don’t put them on top of each other, like that they stay crispy
  • to know if the oil has the right temperature, put the end of a wood slat into the oil, when bubbles stick to it, it’s perfect
  • if the vegetable dough mixture is too dry, add some water, if it is too wet, ad some more gram flour
  • I haven’t found a way yet to make this dish totally fructose free. But some people with fodmap can eat it, has chickpeas are equal in the amount of fructose and glucose.
