My family and I are big Pakora Fans so I'm always tinkering around in the kitchen trying something new. I Made these and it was a hit. These Chicken Pakori are so Delicious its hard to pass them up

  • small bunch of cilantro                                                                                                           
  • oil to fry in                                                                                                                                
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt                                                                                                                
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper                                                                                                                
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin                                                                                                             
  •  
 
Directions:
 
First we will Marinate our chicken So add your cubed chicken, yogurt, garam masala, garlic,  paprika and a little salt about 1/2 tsp. Mix this all together and set aside while we make our besan flour paste.
 
For our Besan flour paste we will add The besan flour, red pepper, ground cumin, salt to taste, chopped up cilantro and dry cilantro. Mix this with a little cold water at a time the paste will be thick not thin just enough for the coat to stick to the chicken
 
Heat up oil about 4 cups because these will be deep fry ed. Coat each chicken cube at a time and fry on medium heat for about 4-5 mins. Do not add to many at a time give them room, because they become soggy if theres too much in the pan. Once fry ed take out and lay out on a dry kitchen towel to absorb excess oil and enjoy with any ketchup, chutney or any dip you desire. Enjoy
