Bhindi Pakora | Okra Pakoda Recipe | Crispy Pakora | Tea Time Snacks
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.
