31 Pakora Recipes, Collection of Pakoda Recipes, Veg Indian Fritters

Pakora or Pakodas are fondly called Bajjias (Bhajias) and are generally deep friend Indian snacks made using besan. Besan is mixed with Indian spices and herbs to get different flavors and taste. Sometimes, even rice flour or hot oil is added to the batter to increase the crispiness of pakoda.

Come monsoon and our hearts start yearning for something spicy and crunchy to munch on, that’s when pakodas come into the picture. The ever popular combination of piping hot pakoda and cutting chai is a famous street food of Mumbai. Even those who are very health-conscious cannot resist munching on just a pakoda or two with their evening chaai! Indeed, savoury snacks like pakore are as much a part of our lifestyle as mithai is a part of our culture.

You can also have pakodas with bread or accompany with an assortment of chutneys :

1. Khajur Imli ki Chutney

2. Dry Garlic Chutney

3. Green Chutney

4. Tomato Ketchup
