    Wonderful! I love pakoras, but have never tried to make them. I even have all of the ingredients. Thanks!

    Tip: readers can purchase these and other hard-to-find spices online at My brother, who is a chef, introduced me to Penzeys Spices about ten years ago, and I've been dealing with them ever since.

    Decobabe,the ajwain seed is similar in smell to thyme but stronger and slightly musty.
    The flavor of ajwain is similar to thyme, which you can substitute if you haven't got ajwain.

    I've got everything but Bishop's weed. What does it taste like so I can figure an Italian substitute?

    I'll be trying this one soon. I found a really good grocery store that sells alot of specialty items where I could probably find the more uncommon ingredients here in the US. Thank you for a great post.
