This pakora recipe is a take off from an original recipe that I love. Normally I would just spend extra time frying these in oil about 1″ deep in a pan doing about 4 to 5 at a time. But I have decided to forgo the long process of frying them and press the whole works into a baking dish and bake. This is also a healthier method of cooking and allows for the flavor of the vegetables to intensify through the process of baking. This worked out great and I will never deep fry pakora again.
2 cups chickpea flour
approx. 1″ fresh ginger finely diced (optional)
3 cloves fresh garlic finely diced
1 Tbsp. cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 – 1 1/2 cups water
approx. 8 cups of chopped vegetables. Use any kind you like. Some that I have used are onions, peppers, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, arugula, celery, kale, sweet potato, swiss chard etc.
Once you have all your vegetables prepared mix all other ingredients, except water, together in a large bowl. Add water and mix to get the consistency of pancake batter. Now add all your veggies. Mix well, using your hands, for this step will help get the veggie mix well coated with batter. Press mixture into a greased or parchment lined 9×13 pan and bake at 350°F for approx. 40 min. Pakora goes really well with Chutney. See my recipe for Apple Chutney. It is very easy to make and versatile.
5 – 6 large apples, peeled, cored and diced (*see note)
In a medium size sauce pan heat coconut oil. Sauté onions until translucent add date puree and stir together. Add ginger, cinnamon and curry powder, mix well. Add diced apples and raisins. Simmer until apples are soft but not mushy. Enjoy as a condiment with pakora, quiche, eggs, fish cakes, burgers, etc.
*note Other fruit such as rhubarb, peaches, pears, mango etc. can be used in place of or in combination with the apples.
Put oats, sugar and salt in food processor. Grind oats into flour. While processor is running pour olive oil into flour. Gradually add cold water, starting with 4 Tbsp. water. Check dough for consistency and transfer to bowl. Add more water if dry. Working with hands, bring together into a ball and begin to press into a pie plate. This takes a bit of time to get pressed down and up the sides with no cracks or spaces. Bake in a 375°F for 10 min. Remove from oven.
