Avocado Pakora / Avocado Bhajia
Avocado – 1 (select a ripe and firm Avocado fruit)
Gram Flour – 1 ½ cup (silted)
Grated Ginger – 1 tsp
Onion – 1 (finely chopped)
Finely chopped Carrot – 1/3 cup
Finely chopped Capsicum – 1/3 cup
Finely chopped Cilantro – 1/3 cup
Finely chopped Green Chillies – 2
Asafetida – 1 pinch
Cumin Powder – ½ tsp
Garam Masala – ½ tsp
Eno Salt – 1 pinch
Salt – to suit tasteOil – for deep frying
Take Gram Flour in a mixing bowl. Make a batter of Bhajia consistency by mixing it with adding water gradually.
Add Ginger Garlic paste and the other ingredients except Oil and Avocado. Mix very well. The batter will become thick. Add a tsp of water and mix to make it to the Bhajia consistency.
Cut the Avocado into two pieces. Discard the pith. Cut the flesh of the Avocado into small dices. Add these dices to the batter and mix gently without making the Avocado mushy.
Heat the Oil in a pan. Once it is medium hot, drop spoonfuls of the batter with the Avocado dices into the Oil without overcrowding. Fry them till they turn golden brown evenly on all side by flipping them around.
Transfer them to a tissue paper with a slotted spoon so that excess Oil can flow back into the pan.
The Avocado Bhajia (Fritters) are ready. Serve them hot with Tomato Ketchup.
