40 min 2 Moderately Spicy Main Ingredient: Sunreap Besan Cuisine: Indian Fusion
2 cups Sunreap Besan or Gram Flour (1 cup is 200 ml measurement)
1 cup sliced onions
½ tsp Ajwain or Carom Seeds
¼ tsp Hing or Asafoetida
1 tsp Red chilli powder
½ tsp Turmeric Powder
1/8th Cup Rice Flour
½ cup water for the batter
1 tsp Oil + Few spoons to brush the pakoras for air frying
Chopped Coriander Leaves as required
Chopped Green chillies as required
Salt to taste
Preheat the Air fryer at 200 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes.
In the meanwhile, take a bowl, add all the above ingredients such as flour, spices, coriander leaves, chillies, salt and mix everything well.
Now add the water slowly and mix well until it forms a thick and sticky batter.
Add 1 tsp of oil to this batter and mix well. This leads to crispy pakoras like the fried ones.
Once the air fryer has been preheated, take small portions of the batter and place them on the Air fryer mesh.
Brush the pakoras lightly with oil.
Air fry them at 200 degrees for 10 minutes.
Flip the pakoras using tongs or spoon and lightly brush some oil, repeat the process for 7 minutes.
You will find the edges crispy and the pakoras cooked well.
Remove and serve hot.
Repeat the process with the rest of the batter until you have a bowlful of pakoras to enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.
