15 minCook

5 minPrep



  • 3 cups gram flour (besan)
  • 3/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1.5 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper (or more to taste)
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbs. coarsely ground coriander seeds
  • 1.5 cups of water (or more to make it slightly wetter than pancake batter)
  • 2 tbsp hot oil


  • Daring Original Plant Chicken
  • 1 medium potato
  • 1 large taro
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 large zucchini

Step 1

Thaw Daring Original Pieces in the refrigerator over night.

Step 2

Slice the vegetables you will be frying.

Step 3

Heat oil in a deep pan over medium heat.

Step 4

In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry batter ingredients. Then, add the water and hot oil into the same mixing bowl.

Step 5

Stir batter until it is slightly wetter than pancake batter.

Step 6

Dip your Daring pieces and sliced veggies in the batter.

Step 7

Test that your frying oil is ready by dropping a small portion of batter. If it sizzles and rises to the top of the oil, your frying oil is ready.

Step 8

Place your batter-dipped Daring pieces and sliced veggies into the frying pan and fry for about 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 9

Drain the fried pakoras on a paper towel or baking rack before serving.
