Do you want Pakoras with that unique British Indian Restaurant quality and taste? Then simply follow the instructions below for success every time...



Preparation Time:


Cooking Time:



160g Self Raising Flour
  4 tsp (25g) Mr Huda's Paste for Onion Bajees & Pakoras 
  180-200 ml Water  
  Fresh Coriander  


1. Put flour in a bowl with a sprinkle of salt. Add the Mr Huda's Paste for Onion Bajees & Pakoras with a sprinkle of finely chopped coriander.

2. Mix thoroughly with a wisk and adding a little water at a time into a nice and fairly thick mix (do not make the mix too runny).

3. Place the items you wish to cook into the mix (little at a time).

4. Coat the item with the mix (not too heavy) and then gently drop into the preheated oil.

5. Turn it gently in the oil and cook until golden.

Once cooked serve hot accompanied with Mint & Tamarind Yoghurt Sauce.

Pakoras can be made in several ways as you can see from our mixed vegetable pakora recipe. This is a lovely and versatile idea; you can cook up different items with just one delicious flour mix and using Mr Huda's Onion Bajee Paste. This recipe is excellent for using up cold cooked chicken.

You simply make the mix and coat your desired item i.e. chicken or individual item of vegetables (cauliflower florets, potatoes slices, aubergines etc) or sliced onion rings and then simply deep fry in medium heat oil.

! When using raw chicken pre boil with some turmeric and salt prior to frying. Very delicious if you have some ready cooked chicken tikka pieces.

! When using hard vegetables such as cauliflower, potatoes etc, par boil the vegetables with some turmeric and salt and leave to cool prior to frying.

"Dear Spices of India, Having discovered your company using Google, I found your website extremely easy to use, and thought it was very well laid out and very informative - clearly a huge amount of thought and effort has gone into this. Having placed an order with you, which was very straight forward, at 1430hrs, your next day delivery indeed arrived the next day, and before 1100hrs - fantastic!! The packaging was excellent, and the invoice well laid out. As for each product, again the packaging was very good - all clean & properly sealed, and in terms of value for money and overall quality, I found them all to be first class. My first experience of on-line shopping with Spices of India has been extremely enjoyable and a delight from start to finish. I will most certainly be shopping with you again and will thoroughly recommend your organisation to others. Truly professional from start to finish. Thank you,"
