Pumpkin Pakodas...!!!

Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category:

It has been raining very heavily in goa this days...so when it starts raining most of us prefer to gorge on hot pakodas and sip piping hot coffee or tea. So i also decided to enjoy hot pakodas with masala tea. Onion pakodas are always common so i thought on making some different pakodas, so this is how my this pumpkin pakodas came in existence. I had heard many times that pakodas can be made from red pumpkin, but never had got any recipe so i invented my own and they were realy tasty and crispy.As i always like spicy food, i had made them very spicy to adjust to our taste buds.


1 cup grated red pumpkin
1 cup chana dal
1 tea spoon chopped ginger
2-3 green chillis
5-6 garlic cloves
2 tea spoon chilli powder
1/2 tea spoon garam masala
1/2 tea spoon cumin powder
1/2 tea spoon corainder powder


Soak chana dal in water for 3-4 hours. Drain all the water and grind it without any water to a course paste.Grind chillis, garlic and ginger to a paste.

Take the grinded chana dal paste in a bowl. add the ground chilli,ginger and garlic and all the other spices and salt. Mix it well.Now squezze the grated pumpkin to remove its water and mix well with batter.

Heat oil and make pakodas and deep fry them on low flame till brown.

Serve with chutney or sauce!

NOTE: Add grated pumpkin just before frying pakodas only or if added before it tends to leave water and spoil the batter consistency.

Preparation Time:15 mins
