How to Make an Authentic Vegetable Pakora With Tahreem and Hussain | Make It In 15-Minutes | Vegetarian and Vegan-Friendly | Serves 5

If you love original, simple Pakistani cuisine, you’re in the right place. As part of our origins series, I visited my ancestor’s village Jallo Chak, which is near the city of Dina in the district of Jhelum.

My family have lived in the village for generations, starting with my great grandfather who moved there over 150 years ago.

My ancestors were farmers, and local hotel owners that served meals, so food has always been a part of my family life when I was growing up.

I was able to catch up with everyone from the village (I hadn’t been back since 2016) and spend some well-needed time with my family.

It was nice to see all the changes in the community, more hospitality, good food, culture growth, it’s a cool calm place, lots of greenery, fields away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

True to our heritage, our pakora recipe is simple and easy to make; we use minimal ingredients, but our pakoras are crispy and packed with flavour. I hope you enjoy making this recipe as much as I do.

🍛 What is a Pakora?
A pakora is a spicy fritter that originated from the Indian subcontinent and arrived in the west in the early 19th century.

As the popularity of Indian and South Asian cuisine began to grow, more people started to enjoy pakoras, and they became a staple of South Asian food in the western world.

A pakora is typically made using vegetables such as onions, potatoes, spinach, spices and can be accompanied by a dip such as a mango chutney.

🥗 Is a Pakora healthy?
Pakoras are deep-fried, so they aren’t the healthiest Asian food out there. We’d advise making them as an accompaniment to a weekend curry or as an indulgent treat, and always enjoy them in moderation.
