The moment we hear the word Ramadan the first thing comes in our minds, without any doubt, is pakoras. Although it is a very harsh reality that we all Muslims are observing this precious month in the scorching heat, and one just can’t even think of eating any fried item in killing summers but since our childhood we are trained to eat pakoras in iftari, we don’t even care about the summers. Our fast is incomplete without pakoras and we actually wait all day to break our fasts as we get to eat those scrumptious pakoras.
