About Protein Pakoda Recipe

Pakoda / fritters are commomn street foods. Here I have given a healthy twist to the original mirch pakoda. It is an attempt to make healthy and nutritious stuffing of our large chilly fritters. Here we have replaced potato stuffing with soya bean stuffing.

How to make Protein Pakoda

  1. For stuffing : Soak the soya bean in water for 1/2 an hour. It would double up in size. Now drain the excess water and keep aside.
  2. In a pressure cooker heat ghee and add asafoetida, cumin seeds. As they crackle add tomato puree, salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder, dry mango powder, chilli powder and cook for a while till its colour changes.
  3. Add soya bean and pea kernels with very little water and cook for two whistles on a high flame.
  4. Open and check if there is any water then let it simmer to make it completely dry as we have to use it as a stuffing. Add chopped coriander and your stuffing is ready.
  5. For Batter: Mix together all the ingredients of batter along with water. Make a thick batter to coat the chillies.
  6. To assemble : Take thick chillies, wash them, pat dry and slit from the centre to deseed them. Now fill in the stuffing prepared.
  7. Dip each chilli in the batter and deep fry on medium flame till golden.
  8. Remove extra oil on tissue paper and enjoy hot and fresh with sauce of your choice.

My Tip:

You can also add pea size dices of capsicum to the stuffing.
