Aloo Pakora Recipe

Ingredients for Aloo Pakora Recipe:

Method for Aloo Pakora Recipe:

  • Take a bowl and add gram flour, rice flour, carom seeds, red chili powder, salt, asafoetida, baking soda ( optional ).

  • Slice the potato in round shape with the help of a knife. You can use a mandolin slicer also. Just keep in mind that the slices are not too thin.
  • Heat oil in a kadhai. The oil has to be not so hot or cold. Before frying the pakoras put a drop of batter in the oil. If it comes up fast then the oil is too hot and if it comes up very slowly it means oil is not hot. It should come steadily. (use saffola oil)

Pakoras are always fun to have especially with tea. If it rains then the combo becomes marvelous. Actually, pakoras are a delight to have during monsoon and winter. Aloo pakoras are served with green chutney, tamarind chutney, tomato sauce. Some people have it with bread.

I know many people who are new in cooking and can not get the texture and consistency of the batter correct and thus they fail to prepare the perfect pakoras. The batter has to be completely coated on the potato slice and the pakora has to puff up while frying that is a perfect Aloo pakora.

Thus follow the step by step instructions and make the yummy Aloo pakoras.


  • Sprinkle some chaat masala on the pakoras.
  • Serve hot with tomato sauce or green chutney or tamarind chutney.


  • Total time of cooking is 40 minutes.
  • Serves 3-4 people
  • Keep a water-filled bowl on your work table so that you can wash your immediately to avoid things getting messy.
