In recent years, the world of baking has opened up to those who are gluten intolerant or sensitive.

Vegetable Pakoras

Sometimes, you just have to go to the source. Since 2012, we’ve been selling Vegetable Pakoras as one of the Indian offerings in our frozen case. We were fine with this Canadian-made version—that is, until we traveled to the Asian subcontinent ourselves and had some of Mother India’s pakoras.
