  • A yummy recipe that is a common sight in most of the Indian homes. I have made a slight change to it by using Finger Chillies for both taste and crunch. The colour also looks so perfect as well as the tempering. Isn't it folks? The chillies have given it a lovely look and the aroma also is too awesome. Melt in mouth Pakoras make it an amazing side dish that can be relished with rice and rotis both. Happy Cooking Everyone!
