It’s amazing how we inherit recipes through family. My mother inherited this recipe for crispy onion pakoras through marriage. I love serving this ketchup chutney with the pakoras, but they work with sriracha sauce too. I prefer the Shan brand of chaat masala, which can easily be found at an Indian/Pakistani grocery. If you can’t find chaat masala, a mixture of ketchup and sriracha sauce tastes just as great.
