Baingan Pakoda
Pakora is a popular Indian snacks made with any vegetables like potato, brinjal, spinach, cauliflower, cabbage, onions, etc. Non veg pakoras are also made with chicken, fish, prawns or mutton, coated with spicy gram flour batter and deep fried in hot oil. These are widely available as a street food in India and are best savored during monsoons with a hot cup of chai.

There are so many varieties of pakora that can be made and some I've already shared on this blog are aloo pyaz ke pakodefish pakora.

Today I'm sharing a recipe of yet another pakora variety called baingan pakora. In this recipe, thin round slices of baingan or brinjal are dipped in a spicy gram flour batter and deep fried in hot oil till crisp.

Baingan pakoda is served hot with mint coriander chutney or tomato ketchup.
