A cute and healthier version of the irresistible Indian classic – Pakoras.



For the pakoras (fritters)

  • 1 cup broccoli, grated or finely chopped
  • ½ cup onion, grated
  • ¼ cup red pepper, finely chopped (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons gram flour
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil to pan fry
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • 56 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 56 baby potatoes, boiled and halved
  • Coriander or basil leaves


  1. Combine all the ingredients for the pakoras (except the oil) and mix well with your hands. Eventually the vegetables will start to leave a little water and the gram flour will help bind them, making a sticky mixture.
  2. Heat oil in a non-stick pan.
  3. Make little ping pong ball sized rounds from the mixture and pan fry till crisp and brown. Rub a little oil on your hands before making the rounds so the batter doesn’t stick to your hands.
  4. Sandwich the pakora between two halves of tomato or potato, secure with a toothpick and serve fresh with yogurt or mint chutney.
  5. A really easy & cute bite sized snack!
