Pakoras (Onion,Corn&beans)

This weekend was raining and i wanted to eat something hot ...after much thinking zeroed on Pakoras being the easiest... i wanted to add something different and tried with corn and beans
and it came out well..here goes the recipe


Onion- 1 medium sized
Corn- 3 tspns
Beans - 2 tspns
Gram flour(besan/kadalai maavu) - 1/2 cup
rice flour- 1 tbspn
water - 3/4 cup(approx)
salt - according to taste
Asafoetida(hing) - a pinch
turmeric powder - 1/4 tspn
chilli powder- 1 tspn
garam masala - 1/4 tspn(optional)


  • cut the onions lengthwise and finely chop the beans and keep in a bowl
  • to this add corn( i have used the tinned corn which is little sweet)
  • add the turmeric ,hing, chilli powder, garam masala and salt and mix well
  • to this add the besan and rice flour and mix well such that the veggies are coated uniformly
  • now add water little by little to form a batter neither loose nor stiff
  • heat oil and fry these in batches ..
  • serve with chutney or ketchup
