Potato Pakora. Nepalese cuisine.

I tried this dish in my trip to Nepal last year. And it immediately became my favourite. It’s a naughty, vegetarian snack. Good to make, when you have guests at the door. Kids love it as it kind of junky.


Potatoes: 3-5

Besan flour- 1 cup

Water- cup

Ginger -1 inch

Garlic- 5 cloves

Smoked paprika- 1 teaspoon



You can add chillies and coriander if you like.



Slice potatoes as thin as can possibly can.

Make a batter. Mix water with besan flour add all other ingredients.

Heat an oil in a frying pan  about 1 -1.5 cm in depth.

Dip potato slices in a batter, shake the excess off and put into oil. Takes around 45 seconds on each side.
