Hi Friends,
Who can say NO to Pakoda/Fritters? I haven't seen anyone who don't like them, variety may varies. Some like potato fritter, some onion, spinach, cauliflower etc. But there are times i find leftover pakodas laying in the bowl and thinking to use it up. I remember few years back when first time i made pakoda side dish. It tastes so different. I loved it so much. Now i never worry if some leftover pakoda are there. This dish can be made of any kind of pakoda/fritter like potato, spinach, bread pakora etc. Its so quick and easy also. My kids loved it so much. Hope you will like it too.

Pakoda/fritter (any) - 2 cup
Onion- 1 medium 
Tomato-1 medium
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Garlic- 6-7 pods
Cumin seeds-1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 spoon
Water- 3 cups or as needed
Salt- as per you taste

Take all your ingredients
Puree onion+tomato+ginger+garlic together

Heat 2-3 tsp oil in a pan or kadai

add cumin seeds and let them crackle

throw in pureed onion+tomato+ginger+garlic

cook for few seconds 

add salt and turmeric powder

let the oil separate

see oil oozes out 

add water

let it come to a boil

now add your pakoda

let it simmer for few seconds

its done within a 1 or 2 minutes

 Its ready to serve


You can serve it Roti/Naan/Rice 
or anything you like 

  1. You can take any pakora/fritter for this recipe. Basically the idea was to use leftover pakoras.
  2. You can puree onion tomato garlic ginger separately also. But as pakoras has its own flavors so its not required to do this to get the flavors.
  3. You can some chat masala or amchoor powder to the gravy to make it more flavorful but i liked the pakora taste so skipped any other masala.
Hope you will like it
