Many of you may be wondering whether pakoras are the same as bhaji? There is one fundamental difference between pakora and bhaji, which is that pakora is a vegetable that has been deep-fried in a batter flavored with spices, while bhaji is any of several Indian dishes that have been fried.
The preparations are called bajji instead of pakora in many parts of India, particularly Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh. Deep-fried vegetables are typically known by the suffix bajji. In potato bajji, for instance, potatoes are sliced and deep-fried.
Generally, pakora refers to a mixture of finely chopped onions, chilies, and spices mixed with gram flour. Small balls are formed or the mixture is poured directly into hot oil to be fried. On the outside, these pakoras are very crisp and on the inside, they are medium-soft to crisp.
