Hello Folks!
I hope I find you all well. So here’s a cracking recipe for chicken pakora…so many of you have asked for this after seeing it on our meals of the week video 🙂 So here it is!
This is just your typical takeaway/restaurant style chicken pakora which is VERY popular fast food here…especially as a starter at an Indian restaurant…or after a few drinks if you’re having a night on the town 😀
Lovely served with the dipping sauce and a wee salad of red onion, cucumber, tomato and iceberg lettuce.
The original recipe is from and it’s always been my go-to pakora recipe 🙂 I’ve changed the original recipe slightly to suit us better.

Everything I used will be below.
