We all love food and drool at the mere mention of our favourite dish. Pakora, Samosa, Dosa, Idli, Dhokla, Khakhra, Thepla, Kachori, and other exciting names can be generally found in Indian cuisine. None of them adequately describe the dish. In other words, unlike, say, Fish and Chips, Stir Fried Vegetables, and so on, the names must be decoded to describe the dish for someone unfamiliar.
A couple from the United Kingdom has gone ahead and named their child âPakora.â The Captainâs Table in Irelandâs Newtownabbey posted the news on Facebook. The restaurant posted a photo of the baby girl, born on August 24, and a receipt for an order of pakoras placed by a UK couple. The newbornâs mother had named her daughter âPakoraâ after one of her favourite restaurant dishes.
A welcome post for baby âPakoraâ
âNow that Is a first!â wrote the restaurant in a Facebook post. Pakora, welcome to the world; we canât wait to meet you xx.â You can also see a photo of the baby and a restaurant receipt in the post!

âMy parents named me Scrambled Eggs, my brotherâs jalapeno pepper â I donât understand why her name is that strange to some of you,â one person wrote. âMy mom named me Quesadilla,â another user wrote. âAfter I turned 18, I had to change my name legally.â âIâm going to name my next two kids onion and bhaji,â someone said.
Now, know the real story!
However, after the post received a lot of attention on social media, Hilary Braniff, the owner of The Captainâs Table, clarified and revealed that the entire thing was a joke. Due to rising costs and rising energy bills, she created the story to âbring a little cheer to the industry.â According to Belfast Live, Braniff stated that she only wanted to share a post and make people happy.
Hilary also revealed that the infant in the picture is her granddaughter., whom she has named Grace. âI just wanted to share my two favourite things in the world: chicken pakora and my baby granddaughter. I figured Iâd combine the two for a little bit of fun, âShe stated.
