Besan Batter

In recent posting, Elizabeth described the delights of Indian pakoras. These are vegetables dipped in a chick pea flour (besan) and water batter (about 1:1) with a pinch of salt and pepper and then shallow fried. To try this out I coated pieces of cauliflower and blackberries and fried them in canola oil for about 5 minutes. They were mildly crunchy on the outside; the sweet berries went really well with the savoury cauliflower. I guess the only mildly difficult part of this dish is finding besan.

I would never have thought of making blackberry pakoras! Cool idea. We have thought of using cauliflower though. Glad to hear that it went so well. (Next time, you've GOT to try banana - and don't forget to add a little crushed chile pepper to the batter too)

That looks fantastic. I can't wait to try it. I'm lucky that there's a place nearby that has besan. I never knew it was the "flour" used for pakoras. Thanks.
