Easy Red Lentil Flour Pakoras (Fritters)

Easy Red Lentil Flour Pakoras

Red Lentil Flour Pakoras - by Leena Butt of Hijabs and Aprons 

1/2 cup Hearthy red lentil flour

1/2 cup thinly sliced onions

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cayenne

2 tsp coriander seeds

1 tsp cumin seeds

~ 1/2 cup cold water
Mix together the dry ingredients.

Slowly stir in the water until you have a thick, workable batter. You might not need all of the water. It should be like thick cake batter, not runny.

Heat 2-3 inches of canola oil in a wok/pot over medium heat (not high!). To check if the oil is ready, stick the tip of a wooden spoon into the oil. If bubbles form right away, you can start frying the pakora fritters. (This isn’t the most accurate gauge, but I don’t have an oil thermometer)

Drop 2 tbsp worth of batter at a time, messy shapes are better!

When they’re a deep golden brown, flip and let finish cooking.

Serve with mint chutney.
