Origins

Haggis pakora Haggis pakora An Indian Scottish fusion The Field

Haggis pakora has been described as a "highly improbable Indo-Caledonian alliance making use of the Scots' most potent culinary weapons: sheep pluck (heart, liver and lungs) and deep-fat frying." It has more fondly been called "an inspired example of Indo-Gael fusion." Haggis pakoras are just one of the many haggis fusion foods that have arisen in recent years. Others include haggis samosas, haggis spring rolls, haggis lasagne and haggis quesadillas. Often these use vegetarian haggis rather than the traditional haggis made from a sheep's stomach stuffed with the chopped up lung, heart and liver of the sheep mixed with oatmeal.

The dish appears to have been the creation of the Sikh community, which has retained its identity while embracing many aspects of Scottish culture. Haggis pakoras have become popular appetizers in Indian restaurants in Scotland, where they appeal to the national predilection for deep-fried food. In 2013 it was reported that a Greenock meat products company had launched prepared haggis pakoras. The product had won the Best Innovative Product prize at the BPEX Foodservice Awards 2013. Prepared haggis pakoras are available from supermarkets. The Scottish celebrity chef Tony Singh served haggis pakora at a pop-up restaurant during the 2015 Edinburgh Festival.

Preparation

The haggis is cooked in its skin in the normal way. The skin is discarded and the contents (meat, oats, etc.) broken up with a fork. The mixture may be spiced with ginger, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, turmeric and garam masala. A thick batter is made of gram flour, chili powder, cumin, salt, yogurt and lemon juice. The meat is shaped into balls, coated with the batter and then deep fried in oil. The pakora is fried for 3–4 minutes, and is ready when the batter is crisp and golden.

Haggis pakoras are normally served with a dipping sauce made of chopped tomatoes, ketchup, cayenne, paprika, chili sauce, lemon juice and beef stock. They may also be served with a creamy yogurt sauce. Haggis pakoras may also be made from vegetarian haggis, and may be served with mango chutney in place of the dipping sauce. Another variant places vegetarian haggis inside mushroom caps, which are then battered and fried as before.
