Pakora is vegetables fried in dough. You can use for pakora almost all the veggies, just cut them in equal pieces so that they are cooked at one time. I usually serve pakora as a single dish, with or without chutney.

1 ½ cup besan
3 onions, sliced
1 large potato, finely sliced
1 tbsp ginger, grated
4 green chilies, sliced
1 tsp chili powder
1 bunch cilantro (coriander), chopped
3 tbsp ghee or butter
pinch of soda and salt

1. Stir 1 tbsp ghee with soda, until mixture bubbles. Combine with besan, ginger, chili powder, salt and ghee and add enough water to get thick dough.
2. Add vegetables and cilantro and mix well. Heat oil in a big saucepan to 180 C.
3. Scoop dough with a spoon (moistening spoon in hot water) and put into a pan. Fry until goldish.
4. Put pakoras on the rack to let grease flow down. Serve up with coconut chutney or tomato dressing.
