The pakora were really, really good. They had a good consistency, not unlike regular pakora. I added extra curry powder, to make them a wee bit more spicy. And cooked them a wee bit longer than suggested, until they were a good brown – and they were quite firm.

2 large white potatoes, cooked and mashed to a firm consistency with no butter or milk
1 red onion, diced
½ large bag of frozen chopped vegetable mix (the kind with broccoli and cauliflower in!)
2 tbsp curry powder (use mild, medium or hot to suit your own taste)
3-4 tbsp fat free yogurt
1 egg, beaten
Place the mashed potato, diced onion and defrosted vegetables into a bowl and combine thoroughly. Stir the curry powder into the yogurt and add this to the 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 with baking paper to prevent the pakoras from sticking, and spoon the mixture onto the tray in tablespoon sized ”dollops”.
Spray with Fry Light 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.
