Pakora

One of the ethnic foods my system had a hard time getting used to when i first arrived here was the East Indian Cuisine. It must be that the spices were truly strong that I sneezed a lot everytime I went near one.

My cousin who lived near their "territory" took me to one of their festivities when I first set foot here. She was really enjoying their samosas and their soup. Over the years, as I got introduced to different cuisine either from work or friends, I have learned to like well not everything Indian but particularly some of their favorites too.

This pakora is one of them. I believe this is deep fried. When I get to compare this with our Filipino Cuisine, the mixture is almost similar to our Ukoy. Eggs, vegetables, etc. What I like particularly about this is the sauce that goes with it. My officemate from UK said she was going to teach me how to make the sauce. When she was growing up in the islands of Trinidad, she had an East Indian neighbor who taught her how to cook their recipes. 'looking forward to it.

Oo nga Bok..officemate is not back from UK yet so I'm keeping my fingers she'll find time to write the recipe down.

Watson..yummy! Ukoy is something I always love to eat lalo na with suka and sili, dagdagan mo pa ng sibuyas.

Chichajo, 'will surely do.
