However, it is possible to avoid frying altogether by tweaking traditional recipes so that they are better for you – like we have done with these baked pakoras. Give them a go, you will feel much better in yourself afterwards. You wont get that heavy, lethargic feeling you often get after fried food. You can eat until your heart is content, not feel guilty and your body will thank you for it.
Healthy baked pakoras
Ingredients (makes 18)
1 medium sized sweet potato
2 cups spinach
2.5 cups chickpea flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chilli (adjust to taste)
1 tsp whole cumin lightly ground
1 tsp whole coriander lightly ground
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp chaat masala
Approx 300ml water
Line a baking tray and preheat the oven to 180°C. Finely chop all the vegetables and then add the flour and spices and mix thoroughly. Start by adding 200ml of the water and mix. You want a sticky paste like mixture so that when you squeeze the mixture in your hands it sticks together. The vegetables will also release some water so add the remaining water according to what the mixture needs. Drop handfuls of mixture onto the lined baking tray. Bake for 30 minutes, turning the pakoras over half way through. These are best served warm with your favourite (no added sugar!) chutney. Enjoy!
