What better than a hot cup of coffee with some crunchy onion pakoras on a cool breezy evening. We love our pakoras for sure.
- 4 Chopped Onions
- 1 bunch Chopped Coriander
- 2 Chopped Green Chili
- salt as per taste
- 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
- 1/2 tsp Corainder Seeds
- 1 tsp Red Chili Powder
- 1 tsp Chili Flakes
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups Besan / Gram Flour
- Water as required
- oil for frying
- In a mixing bowl, add the chopped onions, coriander, green chili followed by the salt and spices. Mix well and add the besan/gram flour and add water little by little to make a very thick batter. Once the batter is ready, add a spoonful of hot oil to it.
- In medium hot oil, drop in the batter to make big sized pakoras. Shapes don’t matter as these are going to be double fried. Once the balls turn slightly golden and cooked from inside, take them out and let them cool.
- Once the big sized pakoras are cooled a little, break them into bite size pieces, one big pakoras can be made into 4-5 smaller pakoras aka sanna pakoras.
- Heat up the oil in high this time and drop the sanna pakoras into it. Fry until they turn crispy and get dark brown colour. Relish with some green chutney or sweet and hot ketchup.
You may also add in some more veggies to this, but this is the way I was served and this is the way my neighbor shared the recipe.. I’ve been making this since like 2 years(when I made Black Forest Cake in Oven, that’s when she shared this with me) and every time this is a wonder! Try it and tell us how it turns.
