I love my Airfryer and Low fat Air fryer Pakora is one of my favorites to make in it. These are also so healthy as they are not deep fried and there is no compromise in taste too. You can make these Air fryer Pakora in less than 30 minutes including the preparation, which is awesome when you are in a hurry to make a quick healthy snack. 

I made simple onion pakoras but you can customize and add vegetables if desired. Also I didn’t use any rice flour in the batter but you can add rice flour for extra crispyness and dark color of the pakoras. 

I used Nuwave 6qt Air fryer for this recipe and I love it so far, it is big and spacious which helps me to shake/toss the basket for even frying of the food in it. I highly recommend it if you are looking to buy one.! 

To make the pakoda special you can add nuts like peanuts or cashews 🙂 . This airfried onion pakora is healthy, tasty and easy to make, a stress free and guilt free treat for you and your family. I hope you try it and enjoy as much as I did.
