1 C (250 ml) chickpea flour
4 Tbsp (60 ml) rice flour

½ tsp (2.5 ml) cumin
½ tsp (2.5 ml) curry powder (optional)
8 Tbsp (120 ml) chopped mint
8 Tbsp (120 ml) chopped coriander

2 C (500 ml) cabbage, shredded
4 – 6 chopped green chillies
1 onion, chopped
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, season to taste.
Combine the flours, spices, herbs, lemon juice and water to form a batter.
Add the cabbage, chopped chillies and onion, and mix to combine.
Pakora can be shallow or deep-fried, so either heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan or use a deep-fryer.
Drop tablespoons of the batter into the heated oil and fry until golden brown.
Remove from the pan and drain on a piece of kitchen towel.
Serve the pakora with mint chutney.
