My blog without an entry for Chicken Pakoras would not be possible. Did I tell you everyone at my home loves fried food? And this is an all time favorite of my husband. I have heard stories that his Aunt makes the best chicken pakoras. Each time she used to make them for the whole family, he would finish it all off and the women in the house (2 other kids and Aunt) would have to eat bread for dinner! Of course mine were not as great I am sure - but he did say it reminded him of his Aunt ones... Hey that's a big star!
I had some minced Chicken from the store and I tried this on a whim. It takes 5 minutes to mix, no marinating required (though you could do it for 1/2 hr if you want) and then fry and eat fresh.
1/2 cup of minced chicken (store bought)
1/4 cup bread crumb
1 large onion cut into small pieces
1 tea spoon of ginger-garlic paste
1-2 green chillies cut into small pieces
1/2 tea spoon of garam masala
1/4 tea spoon coriander powder
1/4 tea spoon cumin powder
2 table spoon of vinegar
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Cilantro for garnish
Mix the chicken with all other ingredients other than Oil and Cilantro and leave for 5-10 minutes.
Get the oil hot and make balls of the mixture above and fry these in low fire.
Serve them hot.
My husband loves to eat his with bread and ketchup while I love mine with Mint chutney!
