"Whenever the rainy season had started, my siblings and I used to request our mum to make these crispy pakoras. It's a very popular snack on the Indian subcontinent. Now, I cook it for my husband who stands by my side while I fry them so he can eat them when they are very hot and crisp. They are really easy to make!"
