Onion Pakodas

Pakodas/fritters are a very quick to prepare snacks. For tea time or any party , they are opted for tasty and good starters. Many varieties of fritters, which may be vegetarian or non vegetarian, are made in India!!. 
A very popular variety of fritters which is also called as "Kanda bhajia" is Onion fritters. Made with julienne of onion and gram flour batter, these fritters become very crunchy and crispy when served hot....
Here I am presenting my style of making these Onion Pakodas!!

2 medium onion
1 cup gram flour(besan)
1/4 cup rice flour
1 green chili(nicely cut into small pieces)
1 teaspoon chaat masala
1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
a pinch of asafeotida(hing)
3-4 whole coriander seeds(crush coarsely for pieces)
salt according to tatse
water for making a semi thick batter
oil for deep frying


Peel and cut julienne of onions. Using hand separate the julienne and put them in water.
In a bowl take gram flour, rice flour and water to make a semi thick batter for fritters. Add all the other ingredients accept onions.
Heat oil on medium flame in a kadahi. When the temperature of oil is appropriate for frying , Mix onion julienne in to the batter and coat them properly. Put the julienne slowly and carefully in hot oil and fry till they turn golden brown in colour.
Remove them on an absorbent paper and keep aside. On time of serving, For once fry them again in hot oil and remove them immediately to avoid burning of the pakodas.
"Onion Pakodas" are ready...

Sprinkle some chaat masala and serve them hot with tomato ketchup!!

Optional notes:

Before serving , the pakodas are deep fried once again to make them more crispy and hot.
