QUAIL EGG FRITTERS / PAKORAS


Quail eggs are abundantly and easily available in Brazil. We always relish the boiled ones that they serve at the salad counters in the restaurants here. I thought making pakoras with them will really be a nice idea to serve as a party snack. It was a real hit. They tasted delicious and looked cute too.

Ingredients:
Quail eggs ... 12
Gram flour ..... 5-6 tbsps.
Salt .......... to taste
Baking soda ... a pinch
Ajwain/carom seeds ... 1/8 tsp. ( optional)

To marinate:
Garlic paste ... 1 tsp.
Lime juice or vinegar ... 1 tbsp.
Salt ..... to taste
Red chilli powder ... 1/4 tsp.( or less)
Garam masala ........ 1/2 tsp.
Turmeric powder ... 1/8 tsp.
Oil .... to fry

Method:


1. Boil the quail eggs and peel them.

2. Mix the ingredients for the marination and marinate the eggs. Set them aside for at least 1 hour.

3. Saute them in a shallow pan with a little oil.
4. Mix the gram flour with baking soda, salt, ajwain. Make a thick batter adding water.

5. Heat oil in a pan and dip the prepared eggs in the batter and deep fry them to a crispy golden brown colour.
6. Serve hot with any sauce of your choice.
