Pakori Ka Raita

Pakori Ka Raita

Pakori Ka Raita  (Indian fritter dipped in yogurt) is a delicious yogurt dish. The soft pakori makes this raita yummy. I have tempered this raita with cumin to give it a smoky flavor.

Pair this raita with our Bhindi Do Pyaza (Okra with Onions), Pyaz Karela Masala (Bitter Guard) or Vegetable Kadai
