Picture of the Day: 28.03.16 - Pakora's in the Rain

We have had a few days of windy and wet weather here.  I don't know what it is, but my husband has a thing about wanting pakora's when it rains.  It's what his mum used to make at home in pakistan when it rained and somewhat of a family tradition.  I don't know if it is a Pakistani thing, I suspect it is with a big cup of tea, or a family quirk, but whenever we have really good long day of rain and dark clouds, he wants pakora's.

One of my husband's really sweet characteristics is that he is very undemanding, he will eat whatever I cook and he won't ask for things.  Sometimes I wish he would, it takes the guessing out of what he feels like eating for me.  So when he wants pakoray, he will say something like: "so, shall I make some pakoray then?" to which I respond: "okay let me make some pakoray".  Any ingredients missing and he is off the grocers across the road like a shot, rain or no rain.

Pakoray's are fritters made of gram flour, potatoes, onions and spices, deep fried in oil, although you can make them with slices of aubergine, whole green chillies and even chunks of chicken.

My recipe for these is here, but I have finally got the hang of my mum-in-law's recipe, which is the best I have ever tasted, I will share soon insh'Allah.
