Dalia Pakora


  • 1 cup Dalia
  • Salt to taste
  • Cooking oil
  • 1/3 cup Gram flour
  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Coriander Leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 Green Chili, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Ajwain
  • Water, as required to make batter


To begin making the Dalia Pakora Recipe, we will first cook the Dalia. Wash the Dalia and set aside. Heat a pressure cooker with 2 cups of water, add some salt to taste, 1 tsp cooking oil and the washed broken wheat. Close the pressure cooker and pressure cook for 4-5 whistles. Turn off the flame and allow the pressure to release naturally. Once the pressure has released, open the pressure cooker to check if the broken wheat has cooked through and there is no water remaining. If there is any water, place it on heat and keep stirring until it most of the water is evaporated. Transfer the cooked broken wheat into the mixing bowl. Set aside and allow it to cool. Once the broken wheat has cooled, into the mixing bowl add the besan, onion, coriander leaves, green chili, salt, turmeric powder, cumin seeds, ajwain, cooking oil and water, as required to make a thick Dalia Pakora batter. We need a thick batter, use just enough water to combine all the ingredients of the Dalia Pakora batter. Heat oil in a pan. Make dollops of batter and drop into hot oil, and fry Pakoras. Serve hot.
