Serves: 4
  • 250 gms chicken, diced

  • 1 tsp red chilli powder - according to your taste
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 3-4 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp rice flour

  • vegetable oil / canola oil - for deep frying
  1. Place the ginger, garlic spices and flours a bowl and mix.
  2. Add chicken pieces, mix well. Gradually add enough water to make a batter of dropping consistency. Beat well. Trapped air in the batter makes pakoras lighter and crisper.
