  1. Indian snacks like samosa and bread pakora are my fav. The rainy evenings make these all the more delicious. Its been a long time since I have not had these, shall make it soon 🙂


  2. The bread pakoras look so inviting, Shail. We grew up eating them at home. Only in the north, it is street food. I have eaten in many Gurudwaras also. They taste good however they are made. My sister used to stuff them with potatoes but I found them way too heavy. Simple bread dipped in besan is perfect. I add garlic but never ginger. Will try it with ginger too 🙂
