“ To me, pakoras are one of the key dishes that celebrate the joys of Ramadan in Pakistan.” Sumayya Jamil
In yesterday’s post I had explored (on this link in posts) Ramadan in Pakistan with the UK-based food writer Sumayya Jamil. Sumayya was very generous to share with us three of her family Recipes for Pakistani dishes popular in Ramadan. I had shared the first, a dessert: Pakistani Seviyan (on this link in recipes), and on this link you will find her Kachumber Bejeweled Salad which she instructs to make and serve with today’s recipe the Pakistani Vegetable Pakoras. Make these recipes and taste the flavours of Ramadan in Pakistan.
Sumayya says about these Pakoras: “A match made in heaven, a simple pakora batter made from chickpea flour and a little rice flour for crispiness and can be used to adorn any seasonal vegetable of choice. Traditionally made with thinly sliced potato, onion rings, aubergines or green chilies. These can be fried until golden and crispy, these are healthier (slightly!) if shallow fried! “
