It's a great starter or a snack food for a picnic on a lazy day out in the sun. They are of course best eaten hot! This recipe will serve at least 2 to 3 people.

Ingredients:

2  ripe bananas (mashed well)
5 level tbsps dried fenugreek leaves
0.5 tsp ground pepper
1 tbsp ginger (peeled and grated/minced)
0.25 tsp turmeric powder
2 green chillies (washed and ground)
0.5 tsp salt
0.25 tsp red chilli powder
2 tsps cumin-coriander powder (thana jeeru)
0.25 tsp asaoetida
3 tsps sugar
0.25 cup cold water

To fry the Pakoras:

Vegetable oil/sunflower oil to deep fry

Method:

1. Mix all the ingredients in the order above in a dish apart from the oil.
2. Only put enough water in the rest of the ingredients (listed before 'water') to ensure that the mixture forms a batter so that it can be dropped into hot oil to fry and form pakoras.
3. Once a consistent, smooth batter is formed, drop the batter into hot oil (spoon by spoon) to deep fry the pakoras to a golden brown colour. (Try to only deep fry 5 or 6 at a time to avoid burning.)
4. Remove from the oil and onto a plate; put some kitchen roll on the plate to help the oil to be further be removed from the pakoras.
5. Eat hot to enjoy them at their best.
