Potato ands pea pakoras

Potato and pea pakoras with chicken and spinach curry


  • 2-4 large white potatoes, cooked and mashed to a firm consistency with no butter or milk
  • 2 red onions, diced
  • ½ bag of frozen peas or mixed veg
  • 2 tbsp curry powder (use mild, medium or hot to suit your own taste)
  • 1 chilli
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Low calorie cooking spray

Pre heat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas 6. Place the mashed potato, diced onion and cooked peas/ veg into a bowl and combine thoroughly.

Stir the curry powder and add this to the pea/vegetable mix and stir thoroughly.

Beat the egg and add it to the mixture, stirring constantly. The mix should still be quite firm, but if it’s too runny add more vegetables.

Line a baking tray/wire rack with baking paper to prevent the pakoras from sticking, and spoon the mixture onto the tray in tablespoon sized ”dollops”.

Spray with low calorie cooking spray and bake for approximately 30-40 minutes – or until firm on the outside and golden brown

Allow to cool slightly so that the pakoras firm up. Served with chicken and spinach curry (recipe from 11 Jan)
