Chinese Pakoras

Come monsoon, and our hearts yearn for crunchy, crispy, spicy and steaming hot pakoras! Although one never tires of having the usual pakoras as often as possible, there are times when we yearn for a change.

Chinese Pakoras are the perfect choice for those days. With an unmistakable oriental identity, these Chinese Pakoras are made with a mixture of veggies and flours perked up with green chillies, ginger and garlic in appropriate forms, to get a mouth-wateringly spicy and crunchy snack.

Make sure you deep-fry these pakoras on a slow flame so that they cook well inside, and serve them hot with Schezuan sauce, as that is the best accompaniment for this irresistible snack.
