Pakora, an indian fritter made with chickpea flour (besan), is a quick and easy dinner, snack or side-dish. Pick up one of Timmy Perrilloux's giant cauliflower and some greens at market to prepare this exotic savory comfort food. Chick-pea flour, also known as garbanzo bean flour or besan, can be found at any well-stocked grocery story. Try dipping it in some of White Woods Farms bbq sauce!
In a mixing bowl, combine besan, flour, coriander, basil, and cayenne. Add enough water to make a paste. Add baking soda, then add lemon juice and mix well. Set aside.
In another bowl, combine spinach, potato, cauliflower, onion, and jalapeño; mix together. Add chaat masala and salt. Add vegetables to batter and mix well. Form mixture into small balls.
Pour oil into a wok and heat to around 375 degrees. Carefully drop balls into hot oil and deep-fry until lightly browned.
Serve hot with chutney or ketchup. For an extra spicy taste, sprinkle with chaat masala.
