This tasty veggie recipe was sent to us by member Katie Cockburn from Northamptonshire. "These spicy vegetable pakoras are great for lunchboxes and make a lovely side dish for any Indian-style menu" She says.


2 large white potatoes, cooked and mashed to a firm consistency with no butter or milk
1 red onion, diced
½ large bag of frozen chopped vegetable mix (sweetcorn, broccoli, carrot, cauliflower)
2 tbsp curry powder (use mild, medium or hot to suit your own taste)
3-4 tbsp fat free yogurt
1 egg, beaten
Low calorie cooking spray

Pre heat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas 6. Place the mashed potato, diced onion and defrosted vegetables into a bowl and combine thoroughly.
Stir the curry powder into the yogurt and add this to the vegetable mix and stir thoroughly.
Beat the egg and add it to the mixture, stirring constantly. The mix should still be quite firm, but if it's too runny add more vegetables.
Line a baking tray/wire rack with baking paper to prevent the pakoras from sticking, and spoon the mixture onto the tray in tablespoon sized ''dollops''.
Spray with low calorie cooking spray and bake for approximately 30-40 minutes - or until firm on the outside and golden brown
Allow to cool slightly so that the pakoras firm up.
Tip: Tip: I prefer to eat these once they have cooled, with a raita made from fat free yogurt, mint sauce and chopped coriander. They make a great Friday-night TV treat!

Sorry posted early. Add some chicken to the mix cooked in spices, should work.

I made these today, replaced some of the potato with cauliflower as I love it and it's speed, they're lovely.
I had two small spuds, half a cauli, diced carrot, frozen spinach and peppers mix it up with some Nat you and an egg and curry powder. I didn't measure anything and sort of blogged them onto the greaseproof and they're good. I should have added onion but forgot and I reckon courgette or aubergine would go well in there too.
