Fulori is a deep fried snack served in Bihar and is the same thing as pakoda except is is made with veggies (and not plain besan or gram flour) I didn't deep fry but baked them in the oven. My recipe is here-
Chopped veggies (i used cauliflower florets and potatoes)
I boiled some water and put the veggies in it and let stand for 5 mins before straining and marinading.
1 cup besan
1/2 cup sour curd
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp ajwain/ carom (I used powdered cumin)
Salt to taste
1 tsp turmeric
Mix these together, it gives a paste like mixture.
Dip veggies in this paste and keep on a greased baking dish. Rub veggies with some oil. Bake in oven at 180 deg for 35 mins, turn in between for crispiness on all sides.
With this I am reminded of Darbhanga when I was there for my wedding. Only a couple of days were left for our wedding. I was in the city (our wedding was held in a small village, Rampura) for shopping and was talking to Niket. Nket was still in the US then. I crossed a rickshaw with a loudspeaker attached to it and playing the song, "fulori bina chatni kaise bani" and Niket was laughing aloud!
To serve, serve hot with ketchup / green chutney and can also be an accompaniment to rice and dal.
