It’s an onion bhaji or bhajji with a Nepalese twist. The Pakora is one of the most popular snack foods in India coming in many varieties. In Nepal is also popular but with less varieties and a slightly more Nepalese twist. Let’s dive into this tasty Nepalese snack food and see what it’s all about.
History of the Pakora
Found and very popular in Pakistan all the way through India and up into Nepal and then China Pakora’s have made it across to International fast food tables in Britain.
Typical Pakora’s are mainly made from two main ingredients: potato and one “extra” before then being dipped in flour and deep-fried in gee. That extra ingredient is then what the Pakora is known as eg. Spinach, egg-plant, onion bhaji etc.

Of all the little snack food’s I’ve covered here this had to be the nicest. Crunchy and full of onion flavor there’s a chili in their to just highlight a burn without being too over powering. Most of the onion bhaji’s I’ve tasted here have been made from red onion, so there is a little extra color and flavor!
