Welcome the monsoons with pakoras!

Pakoras are love. The following pics will make you drool.

Rains splashing.

Winds gushing.

Fan off. Blanket on.

Adrak chai. And...

Pakoraaaaaaaaaaaaaaas!!!

We pity those who do not like pakoras. We mean how cannot someone stay away when there are piping hot bhajiyas or pakoras in a plate? Well we cannot and hence we remind you to make a few in case you have forgotten a few of them.

1. Pyaaz ke pakore

1. Pyaaz ke pakore

Aptly saying, these are world famous in India!

Call them anything, these taste a complete wow with any chutney or sauce and goes best with adrak wali chai.

Cut them in chunks or slices or rounds, they are bound to be yummy.

Hand me a napkin people, I am on my way to cut the onions already.

2. Aloo ke pakore

Nom nom nom nom.. cannot speak when you eat these. Crisp outside, soft potato slice inside. If this is not love, then what is, what is my Lord?

Cut slices, dip in batter, fry and enjoy.

3. Gobhi ke pakore

3. Gobhi ke pakore

No. These are nothing like munchurians and no offense but these taste better!

Cleaned florets of cauliflower dipped in gram flour batter and spices and fried are the best version of cauliflower ever.

Try eating a little hot one and you will see the softness the vegetable possesses.

4. Palak ke pakore

Spinach leaves washed and cut in long stripes mixed with the batter give a delectable taste to your taste buds and joy forever in your heart.

Wowral tip: Before you pop a palak ka pakora, sprinkle little chaat masala on top. Now you know what heavens feel like!

5. Mirch ke pakore

This is not everyone's cup of tea.

Green hot chillies made into pakoras are loved by those who go like spicy and very desi food.

Not even tea can help the heat if you feel it easily. So beware!

6. Corn ke pakore

One of the most wonderful things that monsoons bring along with rain is corn. There is no better combination than a roasted or grilled corn rubbed with lemon and salt.

Another version is yummier when it is paired with besan and made into a pakora. Taste it with cardamom tea and you will never be satisfied.

7. Mix veg pakoras

7. Mix veg pakoras

Add all the vegetables of your choice- raw, half boiled or roasted- anyways and just make a batter and fry. This is a much better way to re- introduce vegetables to your children.

8. Bread pakora

8. Bread pakora

Though not native to us, we Indians completely adore bread and hence there was no way in which we were not going to incorporate this into a pakora. Stuff with boiled potatoes, a few spices, chutneys and dipped into the gram flour batter, bread was never this sinful and delicious.

This. Is. Sheer. Blessing. In. Disguise.
