We folks in the Midwest were hit by a major strom system, that just dumped us with snow & more & before we realised it was a foot ( Yup 12 inches!!) of snow on the ground! What a nice thing to see, but a mess to clean! It was a back breaking thing of cleaning the driveway & side walks.. took us almost an hour! Kids had fun playing though & after all that tiring job all one wanted was a steaming hot cup of nice Masaledar Chai.
So i got set for some hot tea & instantly thought of making Onion Pakodas! It would be a feast some pakodas, Bhutta (corn) & Chai! So i made all these & we enjoyed our cold winter evening with these munchies.
Red Onion - 1
Yellow onion - 2
Gram Flour (Besan) - 1/2 cup.
Rice Flour - 1 tbspn
Chillie Powder - 2 tsps
Cilantro - little( finely chopped)
Salt - to taste.
Green chillies - Add if desired.
Oil - for frying.
1. Cut the onion length wise. Then to it add all flours, salt, chillie powder, cilantro & using little water mix it well. Dont add too much water, as pakodas will absorb oil then.
2. Put them in hot oil in small pieces & fry till golden brown.
Serve it as it is or with some mint chutney, either way it will vanish before you realise :-)
Enjoy your pakodas while it lasts!!
