Veg Pakora Recipe / Crispy Pakora Using Mixed Veggies / Restaurant Style Pakora Recipe

Lets see How to make Restaurant Style Crispy Pakora/ Veg Pakora Recipe. Onion or Vegetable Pakora is most commonly served starter in all the Indian Restaurants here. This is North Indian style pakora and entirely different from the South Indian Onion Pakoda recipe. I learnt this recipe from my neighbor Aunt. I have already shared this recipe along with Punjabi Kadi Pakora recipe. I wanted to have this pakora as a detailed separate post and  the recipe as follows..
Crispy Pakora Recipe
These pakoras are super crispy on the outside and soft inside and tastes amazing with some spicy Green Chutney or even best with simple Tomato Ketchup. Instead of onions I used mixed vegetables whichever available at home. My neighbor Aunt makes this Pakora with cauliflower & Broccoli also. Today, I used Onions, Potato, Capsicum/Green Pepper & Cabbage. You can make this Starter in no time, just chop veggies thinly and mix them with besan flour & spices to a loose batter and deep fry them.

No need to add baking soda, curd makes this pakora soft and crispy as well without hard and dry pakora.
Oil needs to be hot before you add the batter, and while cooking fry in medium high heat.
The consistency of the pakora mix should be loose and not thick like Bonda mix. checkout the video.
