      Gram flour means chickpea flour! Garbanzo flour! Gram, not graham. Not wheat. I don't know why in Indian English they call it "gram," but such confusion it has caused for people trying to make this recipe. Chickpea flour imported from India is often sold under its Hindi name: besan.

      I've been trying out various pakora recipes, and this one stacks up as pretty good. I would make some substitutions, though. It needs more water and less salt. I would go with ½ cup water and ½%u2013¾ tsp salt. And you know what's especially good added to pakoras? Whole coriander seeds. I used ¼ tsp in this recipe. Yum!

      I made with all-purpose flour, maybe that's where I went wrong, or maybe I used too much oil. They were soggy, not crispy, but still tasted very good. Not quite like the pakoras I get at my favorite Indian restaurant, but still very good. Thanks for sharing, Carol!
