These crispy Mango Fritters (Aam Ke Pakode) with a sweet and tangy twist are super easy to make. Serve it with some freshly made chutney and the amazing burst of mango flavor will leave you craving for more!
In a mortar and pestle, add in basil, cilantro, ginger, green chili, carom seeds, fennel seeds, and coriander seeds. Grind them into a coarse paste.
In a separate bowl, add in gram flour, rice flour, salt, red chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, baking soda, hot oil, and your herb-spice paste. Slowly add in your water until it reaches the consistency of pancake batter.
Coat your mangoes in the batter and fry until golden brown. Make sure not to crowd the pan so the pakodas cook evenly without sticking. Take them onto a plate lined with a napkin and sprinkle with chaat masala.
