I had made lovely Mirchi, Potato and Brinjal pakoras for my friends and they all loved it. you can use different veggies like Cauliflower, capsicum, cabbage, Raw banana, aubergines, potato, sweet potato, bitter gourd, green chili and of course Onions.

Along with the mix Vegetable pakoras I have also made bread pakoda. Pakoras are loved by Indians and even my friends from other countries love it.

There are 2 ways you can make mix veg pakora

  1. You can finely chop or grate all the veggies you have and then mix them in the batter. This way the pakora are crisp from outside and nicely soft from within. Plus you get to taste all the veggies in one pakora. I have shared this method of making pakoras in this Vegetable pakora recipe. you can also check this Veg vada recipe which also has the same texture.
  2. The second method to make mix veg pakora is to thinly slice or chop any veggie. Prepare the pakora batter. Dip the veggie slice in the batter and fry it. The good part of this method is that you can select the vegetable pakora variety which you like. As you know we all have different tastes and liking. In this assorted pakora recipe, I have followed this method. you can add your choice of veggies to make pakoras. Take small portions of each vegetable and make pakoras.

This assorted vegetable pakoras can be served with tomato sauce, green chutney and with a hot cup of tea.

  1. Hi
    Thanks for loads of gluten free recipes. The hing I use has 30% maida to 60% hing gum. People who want to avoid gluten might not bother much because of a very small quantity used but for those who are allergic to gluten might have problems. Are you using hing without maida? If yes can you share the brand name? Will buy that when I am visiting India.
    .

    1. bhuvana, i use two types of hing. one hing is given by my neighbor and he gets it from his friend’s hing factory is madurai. this hing beats all the hing brands that i have used till now. but i do not know if it has wheat in it. but looks like it does not as the consistency of the powder is different than the branded ones. the other one i get in the form of solid rock like crystals. i just crush and powder them and use. i think the crystals one do not have gluten.

  2. Hi, what do you do with the oil in which pakoras have been fried? Do you reuse it in any manner?

    1. thanks michael. don’t freeze but you can keep it in refrigerator and use in a day.

  3. What an authentic collection of Indian veg recipes. Love these yummy and crunchy-looking pakoras!!
