Sanna Pakoras Recipe – Crunchy Onion Fritters | Sindhi Snack Recipe

Heya foodies,

What better than a hot cup of coffee with some crunchy onion pakoras on a cool breezy evening. We love our pakoras for sure. spit1

But, wait, these ones are bit different, I tell you. These super crunchy little pakoras are a delight! This recipe had been shared to me by a dear neighbour, who happens to be Sindhi. These sanna pakoras are called sanna, cause I understand sanna means small. There is no much difference in the making of these from the old style pakoras, but the double frying & lotsa coriander does the trick!

So, without further ado, here comes the recipe:

I love these, I hope you would too!!

Many other rituals are there, all families follow different things but what brings them together is the God & the energy & positivity  God gives us while fasting!
