The desire to produce restaurant quality food at home is nothing new and is common around the world. Wouldn't it be great if we could produce our favourite restaurant meals at home, at a fraction of the cost but every bit as good? In many instances, this is not practical but when it comes to pakora sauce, nothing could really be easier. This sauce is comprised of just a few simple ingredients, available at any supermarket and most grocery stores. It takes around five minutes to make but please do note the importance of leaving it to marinade for at least half an hour (longer is better - overnight is fine) in the fridge before serving. This really is necessary to give the flavours time to combine and infuse.

      I'm going to give this recipe a try, thanks for sharing it. Do you have any other Indian restaurant recipes? I have a hub of my own that has a recipe if you are interested.
