Nadiya Hussain’s carrot cake pakoras send viewers into a frenzy of excitement

Recipes from Nadiya’s Family Favourites, Nadiya Hussain’s latest cookbook and BBC Two show have been causing A LOT of chatter online…

First it was the news that Nadiya had combined two classic family favourites fish fingers and lasagne to make a fish finger lasagne – yes you read that correctly!

Then, on the first episode of the Great British Bake Off champ’s BBC Two cooking show, she made a mouth-wateringly good-looking samosa pie which is perfect in a picnic or family day out.

The latest recipe to cause a frenzy with viewers is Nadiya’s carrot cake pakoras… As Nadiya says in the show – if you think the smell of a freshly baked cake is good, just wait until you experience the smell of cake batter being deep fried!

People were quick to share their delight that Nadiya had developed such a winning combination on Twitter.

One person wrote: ‘I’m absolutely loving Nadiya’s Family Favourites, it’s such a joyous celebration of food. @BegumNadiya is so warm, funny and engaging, and her kids are the cutest! Avocado spaghetti and carrot cake pakoras are on my list of recipes to try #nadiyasfamilyfavourites’.

Another added: ‘Just caught @BegumNadiya ‘s #FamilyFavourites and…Carrot-Cake Pakoras?!?…I know what I’m making tomorrow! ❤’.

A third said: ‘Nadiya’s carrot cake pakoras have made me hungrier than I think I have ever felt, they look amazing’.

The full recipe can be found in Nadiya’s cookbook Nadiya’s Family Favourites and we’ve got a feeling some of the other recipes are going to prove just as popular as these carrot cake pakoras. Did someone say giant chocolate éclair roll
