Pakora using Christmas Leftovers
Another use for Christmas leftovers, pakora! We’ve made Brussels sprout pakora before and this year we are having parsnip pakora, carrot pakora and Babybel cheese pakora!
I chopped the veggies into chunks but you can also cut into smaller pieces for a mixed veg style.
128g chickpea flour (Gram Flour)
1 tablespoon of ground coriander
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
Leftover vegetables. We had parsnips and some spongy looking carrots lying about so in they went.
Babybel cheese – cut in half for bite sized pieces.
To a bowl add spices and enough water to make a pancake-like batter.
Add vegetables and Babybel cheese.
Heat fryer or saucepan with oil.
Add a tablespoon of the mix at a time to the oil.
Don’t add too many or you will end up with greasy pakora.
Fry until golden.
We had our pakora with some Crofters Larder Picalilli we brought back from Arran to keep that Christmas feel going.
