Method of Preparation

  1. Wash the green chillies nicely and chopped them finely. 
  2. Wash the potatoes and Chop them into small pieces. You can also use boiled potatoes-no need to wash the boiled potatoes) 
  3. Wash them once again and leave them on a sieve for 2 to 3 minutes to remove any excess water. 
  4. In a deep bowl take chopped potatoes, rock salt, chopped green chilies, and kuttu flour and mix well.
  5. Add water very slowly and mix them well again. The potatoes should be coated or covered with batter completely.
  6. The batter should be free flowing but it should neither be too thin nor too thick. 
  7. Heat the ghee/olive oil in a kadhai/wok on medium heat. 
  8. Pour in a spoonfuls of batter into the oil 7 to 8 times and fry on medium heat still they are reddish-brown in color it takes about 8 to 10 minutes to fry each round.

Recipe Notes 

  • Add little water at a time to make sure that the batter does not become runny. 
  • You can also use water chestnut flour that is the singhara ka atta instead of kuttu flour for these pakodas.
  • Since buckwheat is gluten-free it is a good choice for those who have a gluten allergy.
  • Pour in a small amount of batter into the oil to check whether it bounces back or not. If it sinks to the bottom and does not bounce back that means your oil is not yet heated properly. 
  • Try it again after a few minutes and you see that that little drop of batter will bounce back and sizzle this means that your oil is ready to cook the pakoras.
  • If you want then you can retain or delete potatoes and add other vegetables (spinach, broccoli, cabbage, Potato, Sweet potato, Pumpkin, Colocasia, Raw banana, Raw papaya, Bottle gourd, Tomatoes, Ginger, Lemon, Yam or Suran, Carrots) that can be eaten during the fasting days.
  • You can replace potatoes with sweet potatoes, yam or suran.
