Nothing will be better than having a hot onion pakoda on a cold and rainy evening. So I prepared some pakoda yesterday. My mom used to prepare them whenever it was raining and a quick snack to for anytime occasion. My brother and myself used to finish off them as soon as the pakodas were out from the deep frying pan.
Besan flour: 3/4 cup.
Onion : 1 medium
Green chili : 2-3 count (to your taste)
Baking soda : 1 tsp.
Cashew : 10 count (whole)
Salt : To taste.
Oil : To deep fry.
Cayenne pepper : 1 Tbsp.
- Slice onions into thin long strips and green chillies. Keep aside 2 spoons of onion pieces.
- Add cut cashews.
- Meanwhile heat oil in a frying pan.
- Add besan flour spoon by spoon till all the onions are evenly and thinly coated with the flour.
- Add baking powder, pepper powder, salt and mix well.
- Then add water spoon by spoon till all the flour is mixed with water.
- After the oil is hot enough to deep fry, sprinkle the pakoda mix in the oil slowly.
- Fry them till you got the required crispyness. For the last batch of frying add the onion pieces kept aside(because there will be more flour left out during the final part of the mix to deep fry).
Enjoy the pakoda hot and spicy with chili garlic sauce or pudina chutney or even can be served with chat powder sprinkled over the pakoda…..
