As you may know I love Indian food. I have eaten pakoras but not for some years since I don´t eat eggs or gluten. But surprise, surprise! Pakoras doesn´t contain eggs or gluten! They use chickpea flour! All those years skipping pakoras for nothing. Anyhow, the other day I was craving for this and was digging in my recipes and I found this wonderful recipe. Not sure it is an original Indian pakora, but it´s tasty, so try it!
