How To Make Noodles Pakora


Sometimes my brain works like a parachute when I am stuck with ideas in kitchen. The background of my story is...I had left over vegetables noodles with me screaming for some makeover as no one at my home will eat what was served on previous night. So my brain was racing to find a solution...An making pakora out of it flashed in my mind. I googled to check if I am the only weird person to come up with such solution and found out there are people who have made Noodles Pakora ! 

So I mixed gram flour with some water to make a fine paste and added little seasoning. Tossed the leftover noodles and mixed well with a fork. Fried on high flame til they are golden and crispy. Believe me it was as simple as boiling milk ! So try out this delicious Noodles Pakora and surprise your guests. 

Ingredients:
Noodles /Leftover Noodles ( you can follow my Egg Chowmein Recipe)
3/4 cup Gram flour (besan)
1 Onion, thinly slice
1/4 tsp Pepper powder
1/4 tsp Baking powder
1-2 chopped Green chillies if you like it spicy
Salt to taste 
Water to make the gram flour batter
Oil for deep fry

Method:
If you are making from scratch then boil noodles as per the instructions and chop some vegetables of your choice. Toss all vegetables and season with salt and pepper along with soya, chilly sauce. Add boiled noodles and stir fry on high flame for 5 minutes. And let this cool.

For those who have leftover noodles with them, take gram flour in mixing bowl and initially add very little water and stir to mix well. When you come to a stage where no lumps remain, again add little water at a time and stir well to make a smooth batter.
 

 Why I emphasized enough to add little water at a time is to get rid of lumps. Add salt, pepper, baking powder and onions, mix well thoroughly. Add leftover noodles and use a fork to mix well.

Heat oil for deep frying, check the oil temperature by dropping a noodle strand, if after few seconds it floats on top and turns golden then it means oil is ready. Use fork to drop small portions in hot oil and fry until golden brown. Place the pakoras in a kitchen towel and serve them with tomato ketchup.


Tips:

  • If you feel batter is little runny then you may add 1-2 tbsp cornflour for more thickness.
  • You can add grated cheese to make it more yummy.
