These are not only good in taste but also provide vitamins and carbohydrates to human body. There are the different types of pokaras ; chicken pokaras, minced meat pokaras and potato pokaras but here I would like to share vegetable pokaras which are good for health.

      I love pakoras on a rainy day and these in the picture look great!

      BTW if you fry pakoras on a high flame instead of a low one, they will absorb less oil.
