PAKORAS





Pakora ,s is Pakistani fried fritters .they are crispy ,crunchy and soft in the center .and for me pakora  is my comfort food.
I always looking for when ever it was rain we had them with a cup of black tea. and in the month of Ramadan no Pakistani table is complete with out these heavenly  yummy bites.
My elder sister was very good at making these pakora but wait if you taste these pakora they are perfectly spiced and wonderful for any party as appetizer .
You can dip any thing in this batter and fry them they will be yummy.
And since it’s the month of Ramadan I must say , happy Ramadan to all of you and pray that Allah make us healthy to keep fasting and give us a wonderful and happy eid amine.
