there are occasions when i make pakoras. for the last few days we had sudden unseasonal rains and i did make pakoras in the dull cold weather. rains and pakoras are a never fail combination. not to forget the masala chai that is served with the pakoras.

serve the brinjal bajji hot or warm with mint coriander chutney or tamarind chutney or tomato ketchup.
