Sweetcorn and Carrot Pakoras

CARROT AND SWEETCORN PAKORAS
Based on a Waitrose recipe
 
These little spicy Indian style snacks are great served as a starter, or as part of a buffet or Indian meal. You can add more or less chillies / spices depending on the level of heat you like. Fry the pakoras ahead of time and keep them warm in the low oven.
