Come rain or cold,the evergreen pakoda is the but obvious when it comes to a tea time snack. The pakora is a deep fried snack very popular in South Asia. Vegetables/chicken dipped in a gram /chickpea(besan) flour batter and deep fried till cooked and crisp. The onion pakora is a personal favourite and one that I made for tea this evening.
Ingredients for onion pakora:
Onion - 2 (cut into thin and long)
Besan/Gram flour - 4 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Hing/asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Green chilli - (finely chopped) -optional
Oil - for deep frying
Method for making onion pakoda:
1- Take a mixing bowl and add in all the ingredients and mix well. You may add a tbsp or two of water if required.
2- Take a pan and add in the oil for deep frying. Add in the onions in the gram flour batter in small lumps(no definite shape) and let fry. Deep fry them till golden brown. Take out and drain over the kitchen towel. Serve hot with tomato sauce or a chutney/dip of your choice.
