Wash produce before use
Make the pakora batter
- Scrub or peel the potato; using the large holes of a box grater or a food processor fitted with the grating attachment, coarsely grate the potato.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the potato, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the cauliflower “rice” and carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl. Add the pakora seasoning blend and season with salt and pepper. Stir to form a batter that has the consistency of mashed potatoes. Wipe out the pan.
Cook the pakoras
In the same pan used for the vegetables, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches, spoon 2 tablespoons batter into the pan for each pakora, being careful not to crowd the pan. Press lightly with a spatula and cook, turning once, until the pakoras are crisp and browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt. Add more oil between batches if needed. While the pakoras are cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Make the spicy chile-mango sauce
- Juice the lime.
In a small bowl, stir together the spicy chile-mango blend and lime juice; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Warm the pita breads
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the pita breads, turning once, until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds per side. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven. Cut in half.
Transfer the pita halves to individual plates and fill with the pakoras, arugula, and as much chile-mango sauce as you like. Garnish with the fried shallots and serve.
- Scrub the potato.
