Print Friendly and PDF


Okra Pakora:

Okra Pakoras are fabulous savory fritters, which is apt recipe for a rainy day at home...!

Yesterday, I prepared it by chance, but it turned out very yummy. Nothing feels better than sitting by the window on a cold rainy day, munching on piping hot pakoras and sipping on masala chai.

It also teams up perfect with tomato ketchup or mint chutney.  In this recipe, Okra pieces are fried with spices and gram flour.  The chickpea batter gives them a unique flavor and mouthwatering taste.

Try this once …You just love preparing it again n again..:)

  1. Congratulations!
    Being German, may I point out that the verb is "lieben"? "lieber" means "dear", "liebster" actually means "favorite". :) Greater compliment!

  71. All About okra nutrition. Okra is a popular vegetable of the housewives. The interesting thing is that it contains more nutrients for good health, such as fiber, mucilage, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, niacin, calcium, potassium, magnesium, folic acid, iron.Very good for health.
