hmmm... Explaining Haggis is actually quite difficult. So, in an effort to be clear, I googled it, and the first paragraph on Wiki actually sums it up nicely.
"Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish. There are many recipes, most of which have in common the following ingredients: sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally boiled in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours."
See what I mean when I said the Scots were innovative. I mean, who else could of came up with that?
When I was younger I liked haggis. When I found out how it was made and what was in it, I hated it and never ate it for years. But I re-acquired the taste and love it. It's kind of like sausage, if I were to compare it to anything, but, um, normally more of a kick to it. It's good. It's like a cross between sausage and black pudding (you might not know what that is either though?) in taste.
Pakora is an indian dish. They take vegetables or a small bit of chicken or something and put a batter around them and then, wait for it - you guessed it, deep fry them. no wonder the scots like it so much. As a blend of cultures, you now get Haggis Pakora, which is the 2 above Delicacies combined. Haggis, wrapped in batter and deep fried.
