"Pakoras are spiced fritters originating from the Indian subcontinent, particularly in Indian, Pakistani, Nepalese, and Bengali cuisines. They're often made with onion, potato and other vegetables, but feel free to be creative and use up whatever vegetables you have in the fridge. For even more flavors, you can add a pinch of fenugreek leaves and ajwain seeds. Traditionally pakoras are deep-fried, but you can also opt for less oil and pan-fry them, or use an air fryer."
