I Tried Them
and they failed. I know i just said i will follow a recipe to the T but i didn't have chickpea flour in the house and really got hungry for home-made pakoras. But one of the problems i'm blaming on the recipe itself. It calls for 1 cup of flour and 1/4 cup water - well they did not combine at all and did not reach a consistency of batter. So i added more water. And more water. Can different flours really make such a difference? I used buckwheat flour. I followed the recipe otherwise and was really excited, only to come up with mush. The veggies cooked nicely though, so i picked them out and dipped them in my sauce.
Oh, and i did add the queen of all spices: garam masala mix.
