Pakoras are one of India's most infamous snack dishes. Usually, they are a mixture of different vegetables all bound together with spices and gram flour. This style of pakora is a little simpler and more along the lines of a Japanese tempura dish, but still uses gram flour.
This was the pakora of choice for all kids when I was growing up. These golden discs of potatoes dipped into batter and fried were just amazing. The only thing that made them better (dare I say it) was smothering them in Heinz ketchup. Well, I was five! We would leave the mixed veg, spinach and chilli ones for the grown ups and feast on these.
Turning this into a slightly more adult version, I have cut out the ketchup and added a tang with some chaat masala. Don't just take my word for it, give it a go #tasty!

Delicious when served as a starter or a nibble with imlee, which is a tamarind-based chutney. My children love these with just some plain old tomato ketchup to dunk into.
