There are many days- too many in fact- when we have unbearable cravings for foods that are not so healthy, and crunchy. Pakoras top this list. The weak-hearted amongst us, inevitably, give in to these sinful indulgences; feeling guilty post that is a compulsory affair. But now you can make different types of innovative pakoras, with different fillings, batter, seasoning and dips that still taste yum and can be healthy too.

One can also make pakoras with pulses and grains, breads and cottage cheese,” informs Chef Gautam Mehrishi, corporate executive chef at Sun n Sand. Apart from besan, one can make a batter with rice flour, tempura flour (Japanese flour), mixture of flour with corn flour or can use corn flour by itself. Let's take a look!
