    To be honest they ended up more bhaji than pakora due to the haggis not sticking correctly but on opinion from tasters they wouldnt change them! I must have done something right. My wife demolished most of them & for a fitness freak (ak her) i was well chuffed as its full of fatness.
    Going to redo next week with an egg in the haggis to try & bind & will also be looking at fish, veg, mushroom & chicken.
    Cant wait.
    PS no dip as yet

    Been making something similar at home for a little while, the egg really helps, also makes them a little fluffier.

    We've found onion, potato, aubergine and courgette all make a decent addition, chopped up into rough cubes, haven't tried them with haggis, will have to give it a go :thumbsup:.

    Good job.
    Haggis is the best thing ever to pakora, especially if it's a nice spicy one. Cauliflower is also excellent.

    Why I wrote that I do not know.

    Especially as Im Pakistani and we tend to make these quite often. :facepalm:

    EDIT: I remember now, just to backup the comment about them looking a bit funny. Haggis is yet to be introduced into Pakistani cuisine.
