Rainy season with yummy PAKORAS

Did u welcome this rainy season with yummy PAKORAS of various types?
People of all ages can be seen enjoying the 'pakora', 'chaat' and 'bhuttas' in the rainy season.
Masala chai served in a kulhad with pakoras is a tried and tasted way to usher in the Indian rain!
Having 'chai pakora' or 'bhutta' in rainy season is the best option.
Recipe by ...
1 cup besan (gram flour)
1 tablespoon of coriander powder
1 teaspoon of red chilli powder 
2 chopped green chillies
2 tablespoons chopped hara dhania
Chopped onions
Very small pieces of potato
Salt as per taste
You can add little corn flour in the batter 
3/4 cup of water (Use water as needed)
Oil to fry.
- Mix all the dry ingredients together: besan, corn flour, coriander powder, and salt
- Add the water slowly to make a smooth batter
- Next, add the green chillies, potato, onions and dhania patta. Mix well.
- Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium high heat (if the oil is too hot, pakoras will not be crispy)
- Make small balls of batters and slowly put in the frying pan
- Fry the pakoras in small batches and turn them occasionally. Wait till both sides are golden-brown.
- Pakoras taste the best when they are served hot. You can serve pakoras with dhania-pudina chutney or tomato sauce.
“Try to avoid eating roadside/outside food as much as possible. 
Monsoons also bring their share of hygiene and digestive problems.
Street foods like pani puri, bhel puri, and bhajia may seem very tempting during this season but they contain bacteria that may cause indigestion and even lead to food poisoning.
