Ingredients

Batter Recipe:

3 cups gram flour (besan)

3/4 cup rice flour

1/2 tsp turmeric

1.5 tsp red chili powder

1 tsp black pepper (or more to taste)

2 tsp kosher salt

1 tbs. coarsely ground coriander seeds

1.5 cups of water (or more to make it slightly wetter than pancake batter)

2 tbsp hot oil

Items for frying:

Daring Original Plant Chicken

1 medium potato

1 large taro

1 large white onion

1 large zucchini

Step 1

Thaw Daring Original Pieces in the refrigerator over night.

Step 2

Slice the vegetables you will be frying.

Step 3

Heat oil in a deep pan over medium heat.

Step 4

In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry batter ingredients. Then, add the water and hot oil into the same mixing bowl.

Step 5

Stir batter until it is slightly wetter than pancake batter.

Step 6

Dip your Daring pieces and sliced veggies in the batter.

Step 7

Test that your frying oil is ready by dropping a small portion of batter. If it sizzles and rises to the top of the oil, your frying oil is ready.

Step 8

Place your batter-dipped Daring pieces and sliced veggies into the frying pan and fry for about 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 9

Drain the fried pakoras on a paper towel or baking rack before serving.
