Easy recipe: Chop onions into small bits. Put self-raising flour, turmeric and whatever herb you want into bowl (original recipe suggested sage and chillis), add water slowly, stirring until you get gloopy batter. Stir onions into gloop. Drop tablespoons of gloopy onion into deep fryer (or chip pan equivalent). Fry til crispy.

Also works well with mushrooms!

3oz gram flour (aka besan or chickpea flour)
fresh ginger (about the size of a 5p)
1 clove of garlic
½ tsp garam masala
1 green chilli
2 largish onions cut into rings
Some water
Vegetable oil

Liquidise or fnely chop the ginger, garlic and chilli. Sieve the gram flour, add the garam masala and enough wter to make a thickish, smooth batter. Add the onion rings and mix so they are covered with the batter.

Heat the oil and cook a few rings at a time.

The 'secret' ingredient is the gram flour imo.

Here's the one I do for kids;
chop up a potato and an onion.
Add a bit of salt, cumin, garam masala and fresh coriander if you have it.
add some gram flour and a bit of water

drop spoonful of mixture into a deep fat fryer. Add some chillis to the last batch if you want some hot ones.

I have also made them with grated carrots and chopped spinach. Really tasty.

Jahan, I really like potato, spinach and chilli pakoras.

Think I'll try the carrot ones, thank for that suggestion.

I'm hungry now.
