Ingredients:

Mix Veggie                    - 2 cups (Par boiled)
Gram Flour                    - 1 - 1/2 cups
Salt                                - To taste
Garam Masala               - 1/2 tspoon
Red Chili Powder          - 1/4 tspoon
Baking Soda                  - 1/4 tspoon
Lemon Juice                  - 2 tspoon
Green Chili                    - 2 finely chopped
Coriander                       - 1/4 cup finely chopped
Water                             - for adjusting the batter
Oil                                  - 1 tspoon (optional)


Method:

Par boil the mix veggies in microwave for 5-7 minutes, use the big bowl.
Preheat the oven to 200c and line a baking sheet with nonstick paper.
I used the frozen veggies, mix of Carrot, Peas, Beans, Corn, Onion and peppers.
In the same bowl add the gramflour, garam masala, red chili powder, green chili, coriander and salt. Mix well.

Add the oil if using at this stage.
If the veggies have less water add few spoons of water to adjust the batter consistency. The batter should be on thick side not runny.
If you feel the batter is runny add few tspoon of gramflour.
Now add the baking soda and lemon juice, mix very well.
At this point batter will start to bee fluffy.
Scoop the desired size on the baking tray.

Bake the pakodas on 200c for 12-15 minutes or until golden on top.

Serve these baked mix veggie pakodas with condiments and masala chai. I hope more and more viewers will love this recipe as this is going to part of Meat Free Monday at Tinned Tomatoes.
