Pakora is a popular deep-fried snack across the Indian subcontinent. It's usually served with a chutney or dipped in yogurt. Also known as fritters, pakoras are made by coating ingredients like onion, paneer, potato, spinach, and chicken in a chickpea flour batter and deep frying them until crispy. The snack is often enjoyed with a cup of hot tea, especially during the monsoon season.
