Chicken Pakora

"We believe that a healthy nutritious diet is vitally important for growing minds and bodies." ~ Chris Milner, Head Chef

Ingredients:

  • 700g boneless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 50g rice flour
  • 40g gram flour, sieved
  • 3 dried chillies, crushed or 3 green chillies, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 2 small onions, chopped
  • Small bunch of coriander, finely chopped
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Method:

  1. Put the chicken in a large bowl, then use your hands to coat the pieces in the cornflour. Mix in the rice flour, followed by the gram flour. Add the chillies, spices, onion, coriander, and 1 tsp salt.
  2. Gradually add around 150ml water until the ingredients have become moist and ever so slightly wet.
  3. Fill a deep pan no more than a third full with vegetable oil and heat to 180C.
  4. Squeeze a small amount of the pakora mixture together before carefully lowering it into the hot oil with a spoon.
  5. Fry for 8-10 mins, turning regularly, until cooked through and browned all over.
  6. Set aside on a plate lined with kitchen paper while you repeat with the remaining mixture, frying in small batches.
  7. Serve hot with mango chutney.
