Pakoda or Bhajia
Updated: Aug 30, 2018
The first thing which comes to mind with the onslaught of monsoon and rains is "Chai-Bhajiya"also known as chai-pakora. No body can resist these crunchy snack and a cup of hot tea.
Bhajia or pakoda is a fried fritter made in India. A deep fried pakoda made with a mix of finely chopped vegetables, gram flour and spices, rolled into small balls and fried straight in hot oil . These are very crisp on the outside and medium soft to crisp in inside. Almost all regions of India prepare and relish this simple but amazing snack, known with different names, but always a very popular attraction. This is one snack which gets served from the kitchens of most fancy restaurants to street food vendors. I also found that whenever i put this simple dish in our party, it gets finished before next serving and is loved equally by children and adults alike.
So pakoras are that rooted in our palate. Now that the rain's here, welcome it with open arms and try these bhajia or pakoda recipies.
My collection of pakoda recipes are: pyaaz pakora, made from onion, aloo pakora, made from potato, paalak pakora, made from spinach, and paneer pakora, made from paneer (soft cottage cheese).
