Baked Pakoras

The recipe that I shall be sharing with you today is a healthy version of Pakoras. Traditionally pakoras are fried, but we are going to oven bake them.

Prep time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 20 – 25 mins


  • 1 Medium sized Onion sliced
  • 1 Medium sized Potato chopped
  • 1 Chilli chopped
  • Handful of fresh chopped Coriander
  • Handful of Chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 5 – 7 heaped tablespoons of Garam Flour – (gluten free as made from chickpea and yellow split pea)
  • 50 – 100ml Water – you may not need all of it – use a little bit at a time. 
  • Salt to taste

Makes 10-15 pakoras

  • Mix all the above ingredients in a medium sized bowl, except salt.  
  • The salt goes in just before you put them on the baking tray
  • The mixture needs to be firm consistency not runny or hard (like coleslaw)
  • Heat the oven at gas mark 6 / 180c
  • Spray the baking tray with fry light
  • Spoon out the mixture and put it on the tray
  • Repeat until all the mixture is used up
  • Spray the pakoras with fry light
  • Pop them into the oven for 10 mins, turn them over and leave for another 10 mins until cooked through
  • Serve immediately with Mint yogurt
  • These can be cooked beforehand and reheated.
