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.
