This chicken pakora recipe, a popular street food in India and Pakistan, is full of flavour and makes the ideal appetiser for any party. Tender chicken bites marinated in a fragrant spice blend and deep-fried until golden and crispy.
Cut the chicken into small bite-size pieces and add into a bowl
Add the gram flour, garlic paste, ginger paste, crushed chillies, coriander powder, cumin powder, lemon juice, chilli powder, salt, coriander, and turmeric powder to the chicken then add the water gradually in parts and mix until well combined
Set aside and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes – the longer the better
Deep fry the chicken pakora for 4-6 minutes until golden brown – do not overcrowd the pan as this will prevent the chicken pakoras from cooking through properly
Serve alongside a fresh, yoghurt chutney and enjoy!
