Chicken Pakora

Chicken Pakora

This recipe is one for the non-veg lovers. Usually, pakora is made up with vegetables. But, here pakora recipe is prepared by using chicken in place of the vegetables. It is very easy to make and does not require a lot of time.

The boneless chicken pieces are properly washed and marinated with some spices. Turmeric (haldi) gives a nice yellow colour to these pieces. These spices can be added according to taste. Garlic (lahsan) and onion (pyaaz) pieces are also added along with a dash of curry leaves (curry patta), which give a bold flavour and wonderful aroma. This is topped with sprinkling some lemon juice (nimboo ka ras) on the top, adding a pleasant citrusy kick. Gram flour (besan) and rice flour (chawal ka atta) are added to this chicken mixture for the pakora batter. Cornflour can also be added at this point, to get crunchy pakoras and a thicker batter. A little water can be used to obtain a moist batter, although it should not be too runny. Small pakora pieces are dropped into a hot pan containing oil and deep-fried to golden-brown. The excess oil can be removed by soaking with kitchen tissues.

These crispy golden Chicken Pakoras can be served with tomato sauce or chutney. So get ready to be transported into deep-fried paradise.
