How to make deep-fried Dakor na Gota at home

  1. In a deep bowl, take besan and add semolina to it. Sooji provides a grainy texture to the deep-fried gota.
  2. Now, add the ginger-green chilli paste. They enhance the taste greatly by providing a great punch to the mixture.
  3. Furthermore add spices like cumin seeds, turmeric powder, chilli powder and garam masala.
  4. Furthermore, add fennel seeds, coriander seeds and sesame seeds. They not only give an aromatic fragrance but also, provide a bite to the mixture.
  5. Add the white pepper powder. It is the most important ingredient of dakor na gota. You might feel the quantity is too much but, it is just enough to pep up the flavours.
  6. Now add a pinch baking soda. They will fluff up the dakor na gota on frying.
  7. Finally, add sugar and lemon juice. The sweet and sour flavor enhances the batter.
  8. A dash of hot oil in batter improves the texture.
  9. Add coriander and salt. Many people even prefer adding methi leaves. Using that batter you can prepare “methi na gota” on deep-frying.
  10. Along with a ½ cup of water, mix well to make a batter of dropping consistency.
  11. Keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes. You will find ready mix of dakor na gota where in you just have to add water but, we suggest making it fresh at home.
  12. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan. Maintain the temperature of oil. Very high heat browns the dakor na gota from outside very fast and the inside remains uncooked. If you let the temperature too low then they will turn very oily.
  13. Whisk the batter vigorously and put a spoonful of batter in oil and deep-fry a few at a time on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain the dakor na gota on absorbent paper.
  14. Serve hot with khajur imli ni chutney.
  15. If you enjoyed this recipe, then try other deep-fried Gujarati snacks like Bajra Dhebra, Batata Vada, Kand Na Bhajia and Vatana ni Kachori with Coriander Garlic Chutney.
