I know this is a health food blog which implies less oil, no FRIED treats. I know, but it was too cold today. I made an exception. If it is really cold and if you crave for a snack, this is what you do? Onion pakoras 🙂 This is a very simple pakora which you will find it in almost every bakery in the state of Tamil Nadu.
<15 mins to make this- Slice 2 large onions lengthwise. Add them to a bowl. Take a couple of sprigs of curry leaves and tear them into bits. Put them into the bowl too and sprinkle salt over it and rest it for 5 mins. Onions will ooze some water out of it. Add in say a handful of chickpea flour, 1/2 handful of brown rice flour and 1/4 handful of cornstarch, chilli powder & coriander powder (to taste). Heat 2 tbsp of oil and pour it in as well. Now kneading time. Sprinkle water if you want. Add more salt and let the flours coat over onions well. You might have to add in the same quantity of flours again and more water until you get the flours coated over onions well. Heat oil in a shallow pan and deep fry them 🙂 Don’t make it watery. I like flours to be lightly coated cos it is the tastier version 🙂
