Chicken: Mix well and allow to marinate for about an hour.
Batter: Mix everything into a smooth paste and allow to sit for about _ hour before adding chicken.
Frying the pakoras:
Add the chicken to the batter and mix well.
Heat 2-3 cups of oil (about 1/4 of a deep frying pan).
When oil is VERY hot (test with a drop of batter to see if batter sizzles), start dropping cubes of chicken into the oil.
Lower heat to medium low and fry at medium heat for about 2-3 minutes or until tender and golden.
Remove from oil onto absorbent paper towel to drain excess oil
Serves: 6 as snack or side dish
