(In Indian cooking) a piece of vegetable or meat, coated in seasoned batter and deep-fried.
- Vegetable koftas from white gram, dahi vadas, pakoras of spinach, fenugreek and onions have all been made possible by them without the use of any cooking medium.

From Hindi pakoṛā, denoting a dish of vegetables in gram flour.
