Raw Mango Pakora
Waking up to the soothing sound of raindrops falling, the lingering scent of Petrichor and the pleasantly cold weather made my husband crave for Pakoras. Pakoras and rain seem to be an obvious duo and Monsoons feel incomplete without spending time with your family in the balcony, whilst enjoying the rain and talking about anything and everything.
So, Pakoras were a must for today's menu. However, the rain or maybe my recent internet surfing, pushed me to add a surprising twist. I recently stumbled upon a recipe of Chef Ranveer Brar where he made onion and raw mango Bhajia. My family, though has more of a sweet tooth, so, to customise it I used a raw mango that was a bit ripe, delivering a sweet and sour taste that made the Pakora a lot more complimenting to the showers we were enjoying. I hope your family would enjoy this recipe as much as mine did and would lead to sweet bickering moments we only need during this lockdown.
