Sanna Pakora | Sindhi Pakora | Indian Cooking Challege- July2015

For this month Indian cooking challenge, we make sindhi pakora. This pakora is almost similar to our south indian one with few changes in the ingredients.Last week only, i remembered about this challenge and i dont have dry pomegranate seed, so searched in the nearby grocery store, but i couldn't find it, so  i made it at home.
After making pomegranate juice, extract the seed and dried it in sun for 2 days and i used that in this recipe. To be frank, i dont like the coriander seed in between the pakoras while having it, but my DH have it without any complaints.Other than that, it's a flavorful pakoda. Now over to the recipe.
