Mixed Vegetable Pakora / Deep Fried Vegetable Fritters


Deep fried foods are perfect for cold weather right..But I do feel a little bit guilty when I eat these kinds of dishes, because this drastically affects my waistline..But if I make this I can enjoy it with no guilty feeling..Its because this recipe has tons and tons of veggies as you can see in the pictures..And I know this does good for me too..



This is great for kids as well, you can hide lots of vegetables inside this crispy pakora and they are not going to find it anymore..Most probably they will ask for more after having this..






 I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 7 in the theme Winter Special.. Ok here we are with the last recipe of this BM..



Hope you all enjoy this and here you go to the step by step recipe with pictures..
