Nutrela Soya Fritters- The Tarla Dalal Version

Nutrela Soya Fritters- The Tarla Dalal Version

Well , I was going through one of Tarla Dalal's cookbooks a few days ago. I saw a cool recipe of Egg pakodas. So, I thought why not make a few changes and make the same thing. Just instead of egg I used soya chunks. It tasted sinful. On Saturdays, I am vegetarian and this recipe comes handy every time. It is a perfect tea time snack. Oh! What fun to have soya pakodas with a hot cup of tea on a cool, rainy day! So, Njoy! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe!)
