ONION PAKODA


How did I forget to post this recipe? Remembered this only when Raks posted her minty onion pakoda. I had the urge of making it asap but I could make it only now. Nostalgic memories of the aroma we smell in lala kadai (roadside pakoda shop). Not even once have I tasted it. I would prefer to have this with hot tea.

INGREDIENTS:

Bellary Onions (Big variety) - 3
Ginger (crushed) - 1/2 tsp.
Green chillies finely chopped - 1 tsp.
Besan flour - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp.
Chopped coriander leaves - 2 tsp.
Chopped curry leaves - 2 tsp.
Hing - 1/4 tsp.
Salt - as per taste
Oil - for frying

METHOD:

Chop onions lengthwise. Add all the ingredients to it alongwith a tablespoon of hot oil. Mix well. Divide it into two or three portions.

Take out one portion, sprinkle very little water (The mixture should neither be like a batter nor very dry).

Heat oil in a pan and sprinkle the mixture(with your hand) into the oil. Deep fry till golden brown and serve hot.
Repeat the procedure with the other portions.
