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.
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
