Street Food


Pakoda is an Indian “fritter” made of vegetables. We have tried lots of different variations at Tagore:

This one, to the right, is actually beets and potatoes! The bright pink color surprised everyone. 

Samosas come in all shapes and sizes. I like these little ones (below) that are extra crunchy. The fillings vary but are almost always vegetarian.



Vada is a savory, fritter-like donut common in southern India. They can be made out of dal, lentils, gram flour, or potato. As always, a variety of spices and vegetables can be added. They can also be fried flat in disk-form.
