Wanted to eat hot crunchy pakodas at the same time I wanted it to be healthy. So I baked the pakodas, which I tried earlier from Trendy Relish. To make little more healthier I added some vegetables in it. The recipe is very simple and easy. This is one of the best way to make kids to eat vegetable

  • Cook time:
  • Prep time:
  • Serves: 2 people
  • 1cup -- Chickpea/Besan Flour
  • 3 tbsp -- Rice Flour
  • I no -- Medium size onion
  • 1 cup -- cut vegetables**
  • 2 no -- Green chillies
  • Salt as per taste
  • Oil
  • ** I used some green and orange bell peppers, Cabbage.
  • I stopped using baking powder for this, as this is baking well for me. But in the actual recipe they used 3/4tsp of baking powder. So the choice is yours.

Preheat the oven to 400 F


Mix the dry ingredients well.
Add cut vegetables, green chillies and onions to the dry mixture .


To the mixture add 2 tsp of oil
** Oil will give some crisp effect to the pakodas. You can very will omit this, if you don't want.


Add water little by little to the mixture, until everything binds well. If its little watery no problem, add some more flour and adjust.


Line the cookie sheet with Parchment paper, otherwise the batter will stick into it. I spoiled one cookie sheet like this. Experience talk :))
On the sheet, take the batter in small portions and arrange them. No need to give more space in between each uncooked pakodas, since its not going to expand like cookies. But make sure they are not touching each other,


Using pastry brush, brush some oil on the uncooked pakodas. This is to give a nice golden brown color on the pakoda


Bake it in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. After 10 minutes, take the sheet out and turn the pakodas and brush some oil and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes.


After 15 minutes healthy crunchy snack is ready to serve.
