Tullyz Beer Battered Fysh Pakora


  • 150g Chickpea Flour
  • 100g Plain flour (all purpose)
  • 2 tsp ginger and garlic paste (can use fresh as well)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 2 tsp garam Masala
  • 1/2 red chilli finely chopped (or 1/2 tsp red chilli powder)
  • Salt to taste (start with 1 tsp)
  • 375ml Beer/Soda water
  • 4 cans of Banana Blossoms (1 can is generally 400 gms with the liquid)
  • Oil for deep frying (About 1.75 litre)


  • Add all the ingredients in a large bowl (expect banana blossoms)
  • Pour Beer at the end and mix/whisk well until there are no lumps. Dip you little finger in the mixture and taste with the tip of your tongue. Add salt if needed.
  • Heat up the oil in a saucepan on high.
  • Dip each banana blossom in the batter and gently slide it into the hot oil. Be careful not to fry your fingers.
  • Do not overcrowd the oil as the temperature will drop and the pakoras won’t be crispy.
  • Turn the heat down to medium-high and fry until crispy and golden.
  • Move them around couple of times to get even colour and crispiness.
  • Take them out and place on a tea towel/paper towel/ old newspaper to drain the excess oil.
  • Serve with spicy coriander chutney.
