I got this recipe of Rajasthani pakoda from a roadside restaurant while returning from our trip to Rajasthan. It was like this, we ordered pakoda in that restaurant and when we tasted them, they tasted different. We asked the chef and he told us the recipe. I modified it according to us and used hand blender to get the batter. It’s very easy and pakoda taste awesome.
