Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup white or rice vinegar (Note: rice vinegar gives better results)
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch mixed with 4 tsp water
  • 1 box tempura batter
  • 1 cup diced cauliflower
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 1 cup paneer cubes
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup green onions

Method:

Mix tempura batter according to instructions on box and dip cauliflower, paneer and pineapple and fry shallow till pakoras are golden brown and crispy. Then let sit on paper towel to strain excess oil.

Mix the vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, and soy sauce together and bring to a boil in a small pot. Mix together the cornstarch and water, add to the other ingredients and stir to thicken.

(If desired, you can add 1 green and 1 red pepper, cut julienne style, and pineapple chunks as desired after adding the cornstarch. For a thicker sauce, increase the cornstarch to 4 teaspoons while keeping the water constant.) Once the sauce is made, add the pakora and mix. To garnish, sprinkle sesame seeds and green onion and enjoy.

This dish can be served on crisp cabbage leaf or on noodles. Either way, you’ll love the tangy mix of flavors.


Prep. time: 5-10 minutes
