Besan Pakora (Gram Flour Fritters) in Microwave


          One can't resist the temptation of deep fried pakoras. However, there is always a guilt attached while enjoying them. A healthy alternative to deep fried pakoras is microwaving them (either oil free or with minimal oil). They come out as crispy as their deep fried counterparts and are equally yummy as well.

          For snacks, I made these quick besan pakoras that you should definitely try out. In fact, they are very easy to prepare and are completely hassle free. They go absolutely well with any homemade chutney, sauce, hummus or any kind of dip of your preference. Check out the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare this healthy monsoon delight.








  • 1 cup besan / gram flour 
  • salt to taste
  • pinch of turmeric powder
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp. ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp. flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp. oil + 1/2 tsp. to grease
  • 1 tsp. kasuri methi, crushed
  • 1 tsp. roasted coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp. roasted cumin powder
  • pinch of pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes






          In a bowl, mix all the ingredients. Add little water at a time and make a soft dough. Cover and keep aside for 15 minutes. 

          In a greased microwave safe plate, place dollops of the dough and cook on micro power for 4-5 minutes. Midway turn the pakoras to cook evenly. 

          Serve these healthy snacks as an appetizer with sauce, chutney, hummus, dip or as a tea time snack.
