Enjoy the rainy weather by munching these crispy, spicy pakoras.


1 cup gram flour
Water to make a thick batter
2 tbsp thick cream
1 tsp sugar
Rock Salt to taste
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp turmeric
6 large green chillies
Oil for deep frying


Slit the chillies lengthwise.

Remove the seeds and keep them in salt water for 10 minutes.

Now prepare the batter by mixing gram flour and all other ingredients.

The batter should be of thick consistency. You can do this by adding small amounts of water at a time.

Now heat oil in a frying pan. Dip the chillies in the batter and deep fry till they are golden brown. Serve hot with sweet tomato chutney.
