Chicken pakora, starter or main course…does it really matter, as it is great either way. Tonight we enjoyed it as a main with a little side salad and some mint raita.
So what makes this so good that you can never have enough? Maybe it’s the simplicity, the fact that you can make ahead making it perfect on a school night or that busy weekend. Or maybe it’s just so damn good.
This recipe has enough spice that our kids love them and is actually rather refreshing with the raita other than being so spicy you sweat immensely spending most of your time wiping your brow and the raita or maybe a beer is used more to cool you down as you cant handle the heat. I prefer to savor the taste of the spice as you bite into the tender chicken, the juices oozing into the raita as you dip.
This recipe does get better the longer you marinade but don’t be disheartened if you are making this upon your return from the school run as it still tastes amazing.
Join me in digging out those spices and try this yourself and you will be pleasantly surprised at how good they are.
