    2 people made this


    • ½ kg medium sized shrimps
    • 2 eggs, beaten well
    • 1 cup of sliced onions
    • 4-6 green chilies, chopped into small rings
    • 1 handful of chopped coriander leaves
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • salt as needed
    • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
    • water as needed
    • 3-4 pui shak leaves (Basella alba), chopped
    • 2-3 cups of oil for deep frying


    1. Cut the head of the shrimps and set aside the headless shrimps.
    2. On a bowl, pour the beaten egg and add the chopped onion, green chili and coriander leaves. Mix well and add the flour, salt, soy sauce and just a bit of water. Mix and stir well. Soy sauce is already quite salty-so the amount of salt should be very little.
    3. Now add the chopped pui shak leaves and the shrimps.
    4. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Take a lump of the flour-egg and shrimp mixture in your hand and pour it in the bubbling oil. The lump will swell into a round pakora. Fry until the pakora turns deep brown
    5. It is delicious by itself.
