  4. Fry the Pakoras on a medium flame till they are pale yellow in colour which means the pakoras are half done.
  5. Remove the Pakoras with a perforated spoon and drain off the excess oil.
  6. When the Pakoras cool down a little, break them into half pieces.
  7. Heat the oil in the Kadai and fry the Pakoras pieces to make them crispy till they turn golden brown in colour.
  8. Remove the Pakoras with a perforated spoon and drain off the excess oil.
