Haggis, neeps and tatties is the most famous haggis meal but haggis is now found in some unexpected dishes and some inventive recipes such as pakora and pizza. Check out the haggis recipes and ideas below.
At Holiday Scottish Highlands & Islands we love Indian food and haggis so when we saw haggis pakora on sale in Tesco in Ullapool last September, we had to try them.It was a bit of a joke really but as they were reduced, we thought we had nothing to lose. We weren’t expecting much but they were really tasty and the “authentic Indian dip” had a lovely chilli kick too. We were more than happy to pay full price for our next purchase.
We also tried the black pudding pakora which were OK but the haggis ones were our favourite.
