Step-By-Step Instructions and Images for Making Methi Pakora or Fenugreek Fritters
- Wash fenugreek leaves 2-3 times. Pat them dry.
- Put them in a wide mixing bowl. Add gram flour, rice flour, turmeric powder, carom seeds, coriander powder, cooking soda, oil, chopped onions, red chili powder, and salt.
- Mix them together, and add a few drops of water to give the batter a firm and thin consistency. Refer the pic to ensure the right consistency.
- Heat oil for deep-frying. Take small portions of the batter, press them a little, and gently slide them into the hot oil. Don't overcrowd them. Turn them occasionally to ensure uniform frying.
- Fry them till they become golden brown and crunchy. A batch may take about 4 minutes for frying. Remove them out with a slotted ladle and place on a tissue paper, so that the paper absorbs the excess oil from the pakoras.
- Repeat the same for the remaining batter.
- Now, crispy and aromatic fenugreek fritters are ready to munch. Serve them with a cup of hot coffee or tea. Enjoy the taste!
