These are really hit or miss. Sometimes they’re delicious and other times the texture tastes off. They’re better when really crispy.

Wow, I was excited to try the new version of these (in the blue box) after seeing the description on the Trader Joe’s website, but I have to say, these were one of the worst TJ’s products I’ve ever tried. Where to start? There were many pieces of red onion peels in the middle (onion, I like, but not the outside peel!), and the pomegranate seeds tasted hard and detracted from the rest of it.
To add to that, the middle came out mushy even after cooking for quite awhile. I would definitely not buy these again.

Eating these once a week on a regular basis since they hit the shelves. A good way to have so many vegetables and real nutrition in a snack food or side dish.

Did not like these. The texture was funny and not crispy enough. Also, the seeds are too hard to eat and I even found a stem in one of the pakoras!
So disappointed! These were a once-a-week staple for me, but with this new recipe, I won’t be buying them again.
Please bring back the old recipe!!

Old recipe- amazing. This new one- I could not believe the difference…so bad. I will not be buying again.

I can’t believe they got rid of the ones in the purple box and put these awful new ones (blue box) in their place. The large seeds were unpleasant and just felt wrong, the texture was dreadful, and you had to cook them for 10 min extra just to get the outside a bit crispy. And the sauce was like watered-down sweet and sour sauce, not the old tamarind sauce with a nice kick that I remember. Two thumbs way down Trader Joe!! 🙁

I just got 3 boxes of the new pakoras. I noticed the box had changed but didn’t realize the recipe had changed. The new recipe is gross. The inside of the pakora is almost cheesy and the dipping sauce is sweet, runny and not at all delicious. I’m so let down by the new pakora. Unfortunately I have 2 boxes in my fridge that will be going to waste.
Not that bad
Fully cooked and seasoned.
