Carrot Pakora


For the third day of carrot marathon, it is a savoury snack. I have tasted onion pakoras and cashew pakodas and wanted to try with carrot. The result was amazing, no sweet touch to it, crispy on the out a little softer inside, on the whole a lovely savoury snack
Carrots     2(Grated)
Onion       1 (cut into small pieces)
Rice flour    1/2 cup
Gram flour    1/2 cup
Chilli powder  1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida           1/8 tsp
Salt                     to taste
Cut coriander     1tbsp
Oil                    for deep frying

Wash and peel the carrots. Grate them and transfer it to a bowl
Add the cut onions and coriander to this
To this add the flours, chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt, asafoetida and mix well.The moisture in the carrot is enough to mix the flours. DO NOT ADD MORE WATER . If necessary just add a tsp  or 2 tsps of water
Heat the oil in a pan
After it has heated well(starts to smoke a little) take a little dough in your hand, pinch small portions and drop it in hot oil . Be careful else the hot oil may sputter
Let it fry in medium heat for 1 minute. Now flip everything once so that the other side also fries well. Let it fry till it turns golden brown
Take it out and drain it on an absorbent paper
Serve warm with coconut chutney of Tomato sauce!!
