Mint Chutney

2 C (500 ml) fresh mint

2 C (500 ml) fresh coriander

4 green chillies

½ inch fresh ginger

2 tsp (10 ml) toasted cumin powder

4 Tbsp (60 ml) lemon juice

salt to taste


1 C (250 ml) chickpea flour

4 Tbsp (60 ml) rice flour

2 tsp (10 ml) chilli powder

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

16 curry leaves, chopped

1 tsp (5 ml) lemon juice

23 C (160 ml) water

2 C (500 ml) cabbage, shredded

4 – 6 chopped green chillies

1 onion, chopped

Mint Chutney

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.
