vrat ke pakore, kuttu ke pakore

Kuttu ke pakore are easy to make and taste delicious. they have a soft and melt in mouth texture from inside unlike the pakoras made from besan or gram flour. Since besan is not used during fasting, flours like buckwheat flour, water chestnut flour or amaranth flour is used to make pakoras, halwa, pancakes (chilla) and barfi.

Coarsely crushed peanuts and dry pomegranate powder (anardana powder) are also added to the pakora mixture. The batter has to be thick like a thick cake batter or a thick idli batter. If you make it like the regular pakora batter or even of medium consistency, the pakoras split and break while frying. They also absorb a lot of oil. The consistency should be such, that you can easily shape the pakoras with your hands.

You can Serve the vrat ke pakore with Phalahari chutney, coconut chutney, tamarind chutney or homemade tomato sauce which has no chemical preservatives added to it. since I had made these pakoras on a regular day, I served with tomato sauce.

These kuttu ke pakoras can also be made with water chestnut flour or amaranth flour. You can even mix buckwheat flour (kuttu ka atta) with water chestnut flour (singhare ka atta)  in 1:1 proportion. Few more snacks which you can make for fasting days are:
