1 tablespoon curry powder
1 handful fresh chopped coriander
1 (2.5cm) piece root ginger, grated

Method Prep:10min › Cook:10min › Ready in:20min
In a medium bowl combine flour with curry powder, coriander, ginger and garlic. Make a smooth batter by adding water and mixing together, then add salt. Add water until batter is neither too watery or too thick and still sticks to the spoon.
Heat 5 to 8cm of oil in a heavy saucepan over medium high heat. When oil is hot, dip potato slices in pakora batter to coat, then place in hot oil. When they are golden brown, place on kitchen paper to drain. Repeat dipping and frying with aubergine and onion.
These pakora are very good when served hot with a tamarind or coriander dipping sauce.
