Onion Pakora/Onion Bhaji

2 cups red onions (thinly sliced)

3/4 cups coarse laddu besan (chickpea flour)

1/2 cup cilantro (chopped)

1-2 thai green chili (minced)

Salt to taste

Oil for deep frying


In a large mixing bowl bring together onion, salt, cilantro and chili. Add besan. With a heavy hand bind everything together. Add approx 1/4 cup to bind everything together into a loose, dough.

Heat oil in a wok or frying pan. Drop about 1/4 teaspoon of the batter to test if the oil is ready for frying. If the batter sizzles then it is ready.

Approx. 2 tablespoon at a time drop batter into the hot oil. Shape doesn’t matter here but its preferable if its a flat, loose disc. and doesn’t scatter in the oil.

Fry until golden brown. Serve hot with choice of chutneys and hot chai, coffer or cold beverages.
