Air Fryer Pakora Ingredients:

    Pakora Batter:

    Pakora Filling:


    • Peel and dice the sweet potato and place it into the Instant Pot on the steamer basket. Cook for 15 minutes on the steam function until it is mushy and easy to mash. I used the quick release method for doing this.
    • While your sweet potatoes are steaming make your batter. Mix together both flours and all the seasonings. Add in the lime juice and mix well. Add water a little at a time until you have a smooth thin batter.
    • When the Instant Pot beeps, drain the sweet potato and add it to the leftover vegetables and mash well until you have a thick mashed potato texture.
    • Load the vegetable mixture into the batter and mix well.
    • Form into preferred shapes and layer on a baking mat in your air fryer.
    • Cook for 20 minutes at 180c/360f.
    • Serve.


    I use whatever vegetables that I have spare that have already been cooked and need using up. Usually it will involve cauliflower and carrots.
    If you don’t have any leftover vegetables you can steam cauliflower and onion with your sweet potato instead.
