Many times people like to eat pakodas but due to not eating too much oil they have to avoid pakodas. But you can avoid this problem by making fewer oil pakoras. Although pakodas are a part of the fried roast recipe and the use of oil is usually necessary. But while making pakodas, you can prepare pakodas with less oil by adopting some easy methods. Let us know the tips to make pakoras with less oil.


Gram flour batter
You can make pakoras of any vegetable, one thing is used in all of them, is gram flour. Gram flour batter is prepared for making pakoras. If you don't make the right batter for pakodas, pakodas are made bad. Besan batter for pakoras should be prepared properly. It should neither be too thick nor too thin. Mix all the essential spices and water together in the gram flour to make the batter for the dumplings. Dip your vegetable in the batter to see if it is getting coated well or not. Adding 3-4 drops of oil to the batter will prevent the pakoras from absorbing more oil.

One of the reasons for excess oil in pakoras is frying them in the wrong utensil. While frying pakoras, keep in mind that the utensil you are using should have a thick bottom. This helps in maintaining a constant temperature of the oil and makes the pakodas relatively less oily.

Amount of oil for frying
Often people mistakenly put too much or less oil in the pan while frying the pakoras. Due to this, the pakoras absorb more oil. While deep frying the pakoras, the oil starts running out, on all the remaining pakoras are put together in the pan. Due to this the pakoras stick together and their layer starts coming off. Because of this, the fritters absorb more oil.


Dry oil
On the other hand, when the fritters are fried, dry them well while taking them out of the pan. Later, put paper napkins on the utensil in which the pakodas are being taken out, so that the excess oil gets squeezed into the paper and the pakodas become less oily.
