Pakora (Fritter)or Bhajji’s is a famous recipe for Iftar and Ramadan. Pakoras are made in 90% homes at the time of iftar.Pakoray is a very tasty, light weight, and light saltish snack which taste good with tomato ketchup, raita or chutney.
I try to make different pakoras every time , sometimes aloo (potato)pakora, sometimes pyaz(onions) pakora and sometimes palak pakora.This is the first time, i tried this mix dal pakoras. I’m sharing with all this delicious and yummy mix dal pakora.
This is one of the most favorite pakora or you can say bhajji and there are so many sweet childhood memories attached to it. My mom use to prepare these Bhajji’s every tuesday to break her fast 🙂 and I used to wait for tuesday desperately :)Mix dal pakora can also be served at tea time and snacks or even as starters.
