onion pakoda (fritters)

Posted on Updated on

Hello there beautiful people

Ready for snacks for the evening,i have an Idea, an indian fritter called onion pakoda! i made it today in the morning and want to share it with you all. Um, oily food alert,it has carbs and calories but it is also mouthwatering and hard to resist,it tastes spicy,depends on how many chili you add and is crunchy. you can have it with tea, tastes amazing and these are the first choice for me as snacks during rain.

surprisingly it did rain early morning today and that is why i felt like having it with tea.

i would suggest you to try it once at home! 🙂 and i am sure you will like it !


Here is the list of what you will need, onions,chickpeas flour,green chili,turmeric powder,carom seeds,black salt,salt to taste,oil.

The batter should look like this,things that you need are here in the picture and also onion pakoda with tomato chutney served hot ! Things you will need



serves- 2 people, time for prep.  -15 mins and to cook- 1o mins.
1. Onions -3
2. Green chili – 4
3. Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
4. Salt to taste
5. Chickpeas flour – ¾ cup or 2 tablespoon
6. Carom seeds/ajwain

Cut onions and chili
Add chickpeas flour, turmeric powder, carom seeds and salt to taste.
Mix it well to form a batter with water,
It should be of thick consistency, in a way that everything in the mix is well bound together.
Heat oil in pan. Drop these fritters with hand into the oil and fry them till golden brown.
Serve it hot with tomato sauce, coconut chutney or tomato chutney. I sprinkled a pinch of black salt and pepper powder on the pakodas.

you can also add asafoetida. it aids in digestion and enhances the flavor.

To make tomato chutney

Grind together tomato,green chilli,one or two cloves of garlic and drop of mustard oil or olive oil.add salt to taste!

wishing you a lovely day ahead

    Christmas love
    spreads joyfully to
    friends, new and old, as
    natural as mountain streams
    flow under

    ice and snow
    still moving, to join.
    comes from sharing a
    round table. Buddha

    Jesus, Confucius,
    Abraham, Gandhi
    and Luther invite a pope
    to break bread

    under one God
    that all pray to here
    in Gwangju,
    there in Amsterdam,
    and Davao, where the

    hunt for food
    and water reverts to old
    ways, not the
    usual Christmas,
    but children scramble

    for goodies
    like coconuts, fruit, rare meat
    while we feast
    on turkey, baked so
    well, spring rolls folded

    and rolled by
    hands so delicate you can’t
    what they’ve done. Merry
    Christmas everyone.
