Pyaj Ke Pakora / Pyaji / Onion Fritters

                                                                                 

India is a nation of varied colorful cultures and cuisines. But during my course of stay from North to South India one of the street snacks which I found to be omnipresent is Onion or Pyaz Pakora. Be it during winters of Delhi or rainy climate of Bangalore, this snack is savored by all and sundry. 
                                                                                                                     

During cloudy weather when cool breeze gushes into the balcony of your house, a plateful of pakoras with a cup of tea or coffee or with muri( puffed rice)  would definitely ensure perfect bliss and relaxation of the body and mind. So here is my recipe of enjoyable snack for a cool and cloudy weather. Since the quantity of besan is low as per my liking, therefore you get the real taste of the onion without compromising the crispness of the pakora. Moreover the taste of the pakoras doesn't get overshowed with the taste of the besan.


Ingredients:
3 Onions, thin slices
2-3 tbsp Chickpea flour (besan)
2 Green chillies, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Red chilly powder
A pinch of Baking soda
Fistful Coriander leaves
Little water if you need 
Oil for frying


Method:
Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Mix all the above ingredients except Oil. Combine well and if the dough seems to be dry then sprinkle little water. Take little amount of mixture between your index and thumb fingers and drop into the hot oil. Don't overcrowd the frying pan. Fry until the pakoras are crispy brown. Repeat with the remaining batter. Drain on kitchen towel and serve with chutney. As already mentioned above, I enjoy having these pyajis with muri (puffed rice).
                                               
Sprinkle some Chat masala and enjoy.....
