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. i had made bread pakoras on one of these days.

these baingan pakora were in drafts from a long time and its time i posted this recipe. you can use any variety of brinjal.

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