Welcome to our weekly spotlight on the best restaurants in Glasgow, Cook it and Book it where we'll be sharing some tasty recipes and special offers for you to enjoy!
This week's exclusive offer and recipe comes courtesy of our friends at Mister Singh's India, who have shared one of their favourite pakora recipes with us for those of you cooking, and a special offer for those of you booking who will receive a complimentary portion of haggis pakora when ordering any main course from their A La Carte menu.
Haggis is, of course, a firm Scottish favourite, and pakora, a staple of Indian cuisine, so it came as no surprise to Mister Singh’s India that their unique combination of two strong dishes would become the huge hit that it has with their customers! This recipe has very little preparation time and should only take around 10 minutes to cook, and of course, you can simply mulitply the ingredients to prepare as much pakora for as many guests as you'd like!
800 grams of Haggis
300 grams of Gram Flour
1 tablesoon of Salt
1 teaspoon of Red Chilli Powder
1 teaspoon of Turmeric Powder
1 tablespoon of Ginger Garlic Paste
1 teaspoon of Cumin Seeds
1 teaspoon of Dry Coriander (Crushed)
1 teaspoon of Dry Fenuigreek Leaves
1 tablespoon of Fresh Coriander (Chopped)
Pour the Gram flour into a bowl, then add all spices and make sure to mix them well.
Add cold water, 1 teaspoon at a time to make the mixture into a thick gravy to ensure the mixutre does not become too runny.
Cut the haggis into small square pieces (3/4 of an inch) and add carefully into the gram flour gravy paste.
Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan/wok to 160 - 180 degrees. Place the gravy paste covered haggis pieces into the heated oil carefully one by one.
Start to turn the pakora over after approximately 1 minute and keep repeating the process until they are golden brown and crispy.
Your haggis pakora is now ready to enjoy, but if you're looking for something to go with your haggis pakora, why not try your hand at Mister Sing's Pink Pakora Sacue recipe.
