6. The consistency of the batter should not be very thin or very thick. If the consistency is very thick, it will not coat the egg. If very thin, then it will drip.

7. Remove the shells from hard boiled eggs. Pierce each egg 4 times randomly, once on each side with fork. Slice them and set aside. I sliced one egg to 3 slices. If using large eggs, you may slice to 4. Do not use whole egg to make pakora, it may burst.
