Crispy Vegetable Pakoras – Manjula’s Kitchen
Crispy Vegetable Pakoras are probably my all-time favorite and satisfying appetizer. They are perfect for any occasion, not to mention they are a favorite with all –young or old! These bite-sized snacks are fried to crispy golden-brown perfection. I serve pakoras with tamarind or cilantro chutney. When cooked right they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. These pakoras also have the added benefits of being vegan and gluten-free.
I have many fond memories of my mother cooking pakoras when I was a child. There was no special occasion that warranted her whipping up a batch of pakoras. Sometimes she would just come up with an excuse – be it the weather (especially if it was cold & rainy!) or if she simply wanted something savory and spicy. Pakoras were also a staple in our household when guests would unexpectedly show up at our house.
Vegetable Pakoras are easy and quick to make, not to mention you can use a variety of vegetables to make them. I can tell you from personal experience that these pakoras are extremely addicting! Try pairing these pakoras with your afternoon tea or as a spicy delicious snack!
