Hi Friends!!!!

Here It is newly different and new flavor!!! I had used tapoica for pakora. It gives you really taste.It is the recipe source given by my mom in law who was with me this time. She always makes all dishes very new and differently. She's an intelligent cook!!! Am sure you will love it with new flavor and veggie as an ingredient apart from onion pakora and any other veg pakora.
