Sweet Potato Pakoras

These sweet potato pakoras reminded me of the Aldi sweet potato burgers! If you’ve had them before you’ll know what I am talking about. The mix makes enough for 12 pakoras making them 1 syn each. I haven’t tried them with regular potatoes but they should work with them too. Let me know if  you try them with regular potatoes. Hope you enjoy x

Serves: 12 units

Syns: 1 syn each

Time Taken: 40 minutes

Difficulty: Easy


  • 3 red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 large sweet potato, grated
  • 75g gram flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Spray oil


Mix the onions and potato together so that they are evenly distributed.

Add the gram flour (a bit at a time, you may not need all the amount) and all the spices. Mix it well again. Add the baking powder. If needed, you may add water to the batter (I don’t as there is enough moisture from the onions and potatoes).

Spray a muffin tin with spray oil (or you can use a baking sheet instead and do them free form). Evenly distribute the mix into each muffin hole, you should have enough for 12 pakoras. Press down the mix into the muffin tin and bake them at a preheated oven at 180c for 30 minutes.
