Total Time30 mins
Servings: 10 pakoras
- 10 zucchini flowers
- 3/4 cup chickpea or garbanzo bean flour (besan)
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds + 1/2 tsp ajwain seeds (coarsely powdered)
- 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- Salt to taste
Mix all ingredients except the flowers in a bowl. Add just enough water to make a thick paste.
Heat 2 inches of oil in a skillet to between 350 and 375 degrees.
Dip each zucchini flower in the batter to coat evenly, then drop in the hot oil. You can deep-fry several at a time, but make sure you don't crowd the skillet.
Fry on each side until golden brown and puffy.
