Pakoras and Veg Curry
I followed this pretty closely. Like Vania, I usually tinker with recipes. My only changes were: no asoefetida (I saw some not too long ago and *almost* bought it), green instead of yellow pepper, and I baked them instead of frying.
Here's the batter.
After baking. I coated the parchment paper with canola oil and drizzled each pakora with more oil before popping them in the oven.
edit: They were cooked approximately 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
And they were served with a chickpea, potato, spinach, carrot, pepper curry.
The chickpea flour is definitely key and mine turned out really well. The boy and I ate the entire batch, dipping them in a sweet chili sauce. Luckily I bought lots of chickpea flour so that I can make more!
