Adai Batter Vegetable Pakoras

Adai Batter Vegetable Pakoras – The name says it all. Pakoras prepared with left over Adai batter with veggies. :-) I know I have a few pakora recipes in my blog already like idli batter pakoras or punugulu, Patnam pakodi and zucchini pakodas. So now I am including one more that lot – Adai batter pakoras.

My goal for this marathon was to try and post chaat recipes from all over India. I know one marathon is not enough for that but I am trying to post the popular ones. I have only few snack and appetizer recipe from South India like punugulu, pakoras, masala pori, peanut sundal, pattani sundal. I know I missing a lot here but at least something is better than nothing. So the next few recipes are going to be the South Indian Special appetizers/chaats/snacks.

I wanted to post mixed vegetable pakora but I didn’t plan with adai batter at all. During Vinayakar Chaturthi, when I was going through my archives, I saw the adai batter vadai post. I had some left over Adai batter too and suddenly I though why not try pakoras with this batter? Viola tried it right away and we all enjoyed it to the core and here I am sharing with you all, vegetablepakoraIngredients:

  • Left over adai batter – 2 cups
  • Salt – 1 tsp
  • Baking Soda – 1/2 tsp
  • Carrot – 1
  • Chopped Onion – 1/2 cup
  • Chopped Cabbage – 1/4 cup
  • Green Chilly – 1
  • Chopped Cilantro – 1 tbsp + some for garnish
  • Oil for frying

Prep – Work:

  • You can find the adai recipe here. I used two cups of the batter. The batter I used had coconut and curry leaves already added.
  • Chop the onion, cabbage and green chilly.
  • Peel the carrot skin and grate the carrot.

Steps:

  • Heat the oil for frying in a deep wide pan.
  • Meanwhile mix the veggies to the adai batter.
  • Add salt, baking soda and chopped green chilly and cilantro too.

  • Mix well and that’s it the batter is now ready.

  • Once the oil is hot, reduce the heat to medium low.
  • Now take small portion of the batter and slowly drop it in oil. In one batch I tried up to 4 small Pakoras.
  • Let them fry till they turn golden brown or until the oil bubble sound ceases.
  • Take them out and let it sit in the tissue paper to remove the excess oil.
  • Repeat the same with the remaining batter.

That’s it. Yummy pakodas are ready. Enjoy this with hot chai.

Notes:

  • Adjust the salt and spice according to your preference.
  • Make sure the oil is medium heat before frying. This ensures soft, crispy and well-cooked pakodas.
  • Do not let the batter sit for a long time. Fry the pakodas right away as the veggies might ooze out lot of water.
  • Also if you feel the batter is soggy, add more rice flour or chick pea flour. In that case adjust the salt and spice.
  • Adjust the veggies as per your preference.

    Fabulous idea to use up the adai batter. I am thinking “why make adais at all” I could just the batter to make these crunchy pakodas! Yum

    These pakora make an excellent evening / after school snack with leftover batter. And yes, I am sure it is addictive like any other pakora.

Would love hear back from you. Drop in your feedback and comments. Thanks
