VeganMoFo: Pancakes? Pakora's?


Indian Vegetable Pakora's w. Broccoli, Cauliflower + Almond Saute



Anytime I shred up a bunch of vegetables and add Indian spices I say I'm making pakoras. Whether this is correct or not I don't know and don't really care. Basically it's the same process of making a potato pancake except there are other veg..this time potatoes, onions, string beans, garlic, ginger and carrots and I use olive oil, chickpea flour, curry and other indian inspired spices to flavor and hold it all together. It's my favorite way of using up vegetables that are on there way very soon to the trash.

Tonight I served them with a really simple and delicious saute of broccoli, cauliflower and almonds topped with papaya chutney (store bought). My all time favorite way to serve them though is more "ball" shaped, lightly fried and then simmered in a homemade curry sauce over rice...kofta curry. I usually make a lot of them at once and then freeze a batch for later use.

If you are having guest over for a party and are serving appetizers these are perfect because of there reheating abilities. Make them bit size, cook them the night before and then just heat them up in the oven and top them with a bit of your favorite chutney. Your guest will go nuts over them and think you've slaved away in the kitchen for hours.

I love Indian food and this sounds really good, whatever it's called! I've never made koftas cuz I thought they were always deep fried, but I love your appetizer idea.

great idea! whenever we're having guests, I get temporary amnesia and totally blank on what to cook! I'll file this away mentally.

Indian food, especially the appetizers are the best. I like my pakoras with tamarind sauce.
