Come monsoon and we think of everything crispy, greasy and decadent. Pitter patter on the windowpanes and the nippy weather escalates our cravings for pakoras and bhajias. In fact, a hot cup of tea on a monsoon evening is just not complete without these delicacies by the side. As a result, we end up making some or the other bhajia at home to enjoy evening tea while watching the rain-washed nature. But same the aloo pakora and peyaj pakora can be boring at times. Which is why we are in constant search for unique snacks recipes to enjoy throughout the monsoon.
One such amazing option we recently came across is sooji pakoda. Made with sooji, dahi, onion and several other ingredients, this snack is soft from inside and crispy from outside. The unique texture adds on the flavour of the dish, leaving us impressed to the core.
