SANNA PAKORA (Sindhi Pakoras)

Sindhi Sana Pakoras are a bit different than the normal ones. Here we double-fry them. First the thick batter is fried into big chunks. These are broken into smaller pieces and fried again until crisp and crunchy.

Besan / Gram flour .... 2 cups
Onion ................. 1 (finely chopped -  about half cup)
Green chillies .... 2-3 (finely chopped)
Coriander leaves .. handful
Mint leaves ........ few
Whole coriander seeds .. 1 tbsp
Anardana .......... 1 tsp (crushed) - optional
Baking soda ..............  2 pinches
Red chilli powder ..... 1/4 tsp
Salt ............................ to taste
Oil ............ to fry


1. Mix all the ingredients except oil to make a thick batter.

2. Heat oil in a kadai and drop big chunks of this batter. Fry on medium flame to half done.

 3. Remove and set aside.

4. Just before serving, cut these into smaller pieces.

5. Heat oil and fry until crisp.

6. Remove them on a kitchen tissue.
Serve hot with mint chutney or any sauce of your choice.
