    Pakora recipe is easy to make, I have added some interesting ingredients to make this dish amazing in taste. In India, chai and pakora is dish that we enjoy all over the year. But basically in monsoon, the fried pakora is mostly on the top of the list of our moody food menu. 

    Mirch pakora or pakoda is not only a delicious food dish but it is an emotion for us. As Indians, we have memories shared with our friends, family, and dear ones while having crunchy pakora with hot ginger tea. 

    Not only in monsoon but in winter also we crave this amazing food combo. As I said before we all have unforgettable moments which we have lived with our loved ones. I also have those memories I spend with my cousins, family, and friends.

    In my childhood, my grandfather always used to ask my grandmother to make crispy and crunchy pakoras. And I have one interesting story to tell you about how I learn to make these delicious pakoras.

    Mirch Pakora Story

    One day my grandfather ask to make mirch pakora at home and my grandmother was doing something in the kitchen. After asking to make pakoras 5 to 6 times finally grandfather went to the kitchen to see what actually going on. I also start walking towards the kitchen by following my grandpa. Finally, we enter the kitchen and what we saw was grandma making one unique recipe of pakora to surprise my grandpa. 

    But unfortunately we already saw what she was preparing, and it was the stuffed mirch pakora. That sound interesting, right? I was very excited to eat that pakora so I asked grandma to let me help her to stuff the chiles so she can make mirch pakoras in less time. And this was the time when I make mirch pakora first time. 

    After tasting these pakoras, I became a fan of these chili pakoras. Then I quickly learned the recipe for these chili pakoras from my grandmother and today I am going to share the same recipe with you.

    Before making pakoras, let us see what pakoras are. Actually, pakora or bhajiya or bhaji is a fritter made with spices, stuffed with veggies, and coated with gram flour.

    Gram flour is also known as chickpea flour. To make pakora we need to add some spices and water in gram flour and then take your favorite veggies and dip it in gram flour batter, now deep fried this pakora in oil.

    Do you know what I think? In India, we need to declare pakoras as a national food. Whatever the season is we all need those amazing pakoras to pair with tea. Mainly in the monsoon and winter seasons.

    Not only as snacks but you can pair pakoras with the main course as a side dish. Like, if you are planning to cook dal-rice in lunch then fry some onion, brinjal, or potato pakoras to serve with dal-rice as a side dish.

    There are two types of making pakoras. The first way is you can cut vegetables and then dip these vegetables in the chickpea flour batter and your pakoras are ready to fry. Fry it and serve hot. 

    Now the second way to make pakora is just to cut the veggies from which you want to make pakoras. You can chop vegetables or can cut them in slices like we cut veggies for noodles. Add this vegetable to the batter and fry the pakoras.
