Courgette Pakora Recipe submitted by Baldy
I can recommend this recipe from my friend Stuart – especially for the spice lovers.
Pakoras are a great accompaniment for a curry. These ones are very simple to make and with the added courgette not only do they add vegetables into the dish, but also are very frugal and tasty too.
I like to make a double quantity of these as they always go down so well, although those with a smaller appetite will want to stick with the 8 that this recipe makes.
Ingredients for Courgette Pakora:
- 2 courgettes grated
- 1 red onion finely sliced
- 1 to 2 red chillies – depending on your taste
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 egg
- salt & pepper
- self raising flour
Method to make Courgette Pakora:
- Mix all the ingredients together adding enough flour to make a thick paste (100 – 150 grams).
- Fry a tablespoon full until deep brown on both sides and serve hot with your choice of dipping sauce.
Should make about 8 Pakora and only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish. If you enjoy extra spice you can always increase the red chillies in the recipe or add a pinch of paprika for a more smokey taste.
I have just made these, very simple and very tasty
I have just made these, but without the chillies as I did not have them. I was dying to make them after reading the recipe, and they are delicious and amazingly quick!
These sound lovely and a good way of dealing with my current glut! Do you deep or shallow fry these? Thanks
Add a jar of sweet Thai chillie to the mix. Fantastic. Fry in a deep work.
Great recipe, made them several times now as lots of courgettes this year.
Have frozen a batch to eat with curries.
These were great!
I added some chopped spinach in mine which worked really well also 🙂
