Hello There. So it started raining here. And God knows we need it. I remember those days when during monsoon my brother used get hot samosas and kachoris with tamarind chutney from nearby shop. It came from a very small shop that was also the owner’s house. I still recall the taste of those samosa and kachori taste on my palate.
Maybe I should try making samosa and kachori one fine day. However for now it is this soft mung dal pakode for your tea time snacks. I had packed some for my tiffin box as well.
Do try and let me know if you like it.
