The chill is biting...and the weatherman says, this is going to be one of the severest winters hitting Delhi. That became evident no sooner than the new year rolled in. The sun playing hooky far too often, steely cold waves, and even a light drizzle earlier this week--winter has started showing its harsh face to us.
All you want to have in such a season is something hot. If it's also fried and crispy, would you complain? I certainly wouldn't. And so I made this little wintry treat to bite off the chill with mugfuls of hot chai to accompany it. Egg lovers, do join me for this savoury indulgence. It can be made in minutes, so let's get frying!
Eggs - 4-5, hard boiled, mashed
Potato - 2 medium sized, boiled and mashed
Bread slcies - 3-4
Onion - 1 medium sized, chopped fine
Garlic - 4-6 cloves, chopped fine
Green chilli - 2-3, chopped (or more if you want it hotter)
Tomato ketchup - 1 tablespoon
Green chilli sauce - 1 tablespoon
Mustard powder - 1 tablespoon
Oil for frying
1. Bind all the ingredients except bread crumbs and oil. Make a tight dough.
2. Take a small portion into your palms and give it a shape of your choice.
3. Cover the pakora with bread crumbs
4. Heat oil in a skillet/frying pan and fry the pakoras.
5. Serve with kecthup/salad.
We had them with ginger pickle and the combination was perfect. This is certainly something I will be making more this winter. The dipping mercury is commanding me to, after all!
I hope you like it too :)
