Pakora Sauce Recipe

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 have them be 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 that are 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 marinate 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.
