Eggplant Pakoras


What are Pakoras?

Pakoras are made using one or two main ingredients, such as onion, eggplantpotatospinachplantainpaneercauliflowertomato, or chili pepper. They are dipped in a batter made from gram flour and then roasted. The most popular varieties include pyaaz pakora, made from onion, and aloo pakora, made from potato. Other variations include paalak pakora, made from spinach, and paneer pakora, made from paneer (soft cottage cheese). When onions, on their own, are prepared in the same way, they are known as onion bajji. A variation of pakora made from wheat flour, salt, and tiny bits of potato or onion (optional), is called noon bariya (nūn = salt) (Hindiनूनबरिया), typically found in eastern Uttar Pradesh in India.
