Baked Sweet Potato Pakoras

When the wind is blasting our house with snow and there is a fire blazing in the fireplace the pine and eucalyptus wood filling the house with an amazing smell I can almost forget that it’s springtime.

i know, I know, most people embrace spring time, the green plants, the wild flowers and the warmer days. Running a few miles in fields of green lupine and watching the blooms budding on the manzanita bushes is really pretty I will admit, but my heart aches for winter and cold nights.

Like tonight.

Cold snowy nights call for delicious Indian food. By the time we get to India in eight months I hope to be a fantastic Indian cook and know just a little bit more about the cuisine of India.

This weeks challenge; how to make pakoras!

These are not just pakoras but a healthy version of pakoras! Even better!
