Three cheers to comfort food! This recipe was featured in a Hindi magazine way back in 1988 when I was a tiny tot. I used to keep clippings of such recipes and I used to stick them in a long notebook specially bought for this purpose.This recipe was contributed by a lady named Snehlata Deswal. If she is reading this post then thank you from the bottom of my heart as this recipe has grown to be a huge hit with my family and friends. Instead of Potatoes, Raw Banana is used which gives a wonderful taste. However there are things to be followed: 1. You will be serving this with sweet and sour chutney with a sprinkling of Chaat Masala. Now Chaat Masala already contains salt so limit the amount of salt in the batter as you would not want to end up with too salty Pakoras. 2. Slice the Raw Banana thinly as you would do a Potato Chip. If you find this difficult then use a tool called a Mandoline or whatever is available. 3. Make the Pakoras immediately after making the batter. We are adding baking powder to the batter for fluffier Pakoras. If kept for more than 5 minutes the resulting Pakoras would absorb a lot of oil. Now let us make the delicious Pakoras.
