Kale and Onion Pakoras


2 medium red onions, thinly sliced
3 green chilies
3/4 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp ginger, minced finely
1 Tbsp cilantro, minced finely
1 tsp pakora masala
5 or 6 very young kale leaves, finely shredded
1 tsp or less salt 
1/4 cup besan flour
oil for frying


Mix together all the ingredients.

In a large wok, heat up oil to 325 degrees F.  Form small dumplings with a spoon and drop batter in the oil. Fry until crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen paper. 

Serve with cilantro and mint chutney.


  1. Do you have a recipe for cilantro mint chutney?
    And another question, could they be baked

  2. Please click here: for the cilantro mint chutney.
    I have not baked pakoras. I have seen other bloggers baking them but I am pretty sure the flavor and texture would be compromised.
