Chicken Pakora, a popular street food with Indian roots, boasts tender chicken, vibrant spices and a crispy coating. The chicken is deep fried to perfection yet juicy and flavorful.
In a bowl, place chicken pieces. Add the spices. Toss the chicken and allow to marinate.
Add gram flour, cornstarch and baking soda to the chicken and toss. Sprinkle water until it forms a thick batter.
Heat oil in wok. Add chicken pieces and fry them for 4-5 minutes until they are golden and crispy.
Transfer the crispy chicken pakoras to a plate. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with lemon wedges and any dips.
– Once fried, place the chicken pakora on a paper towel to absorb excess oil. – Allow it to cool completely before storing in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
