Step-By-Step Instructions and Images for Making Methi Pakora or Fenugreek Fritters

  1. Wash fenugreek leaves 2-3 times. Pat them dry.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Repeat the same for the remaining batter.
  7. Now, crispy and aromatic fenugreek fritters are ready to munch. Serve them with a cup of hot coffee or tea. Enjoy the taste!
