Homemade Pakora Mix

Ramadan is the time of the year where muslims fast, and we try our best to create a strong connection with God. We want to spend our time focused on things other than cooking. I love to cook and bake but while I am fasting it really takes a lot out of me and it frustrates me when I can’t taste the food I make as I make it. I can’t make adjustments as needed. So this homemade pakora mix was perfect. I can make this mix before Ramadan begins and I can take out only as much as I need. This recipe is great as it can be doubled or tripled to your preference.
