Step 1

Wash and slice big onions thinly.Wash and chop ginger,green chillies,mint,curry leaves,coriander leaves & set aside.

Step 2

In a wide bowl,take all the ingredients except cooking oil and ghee.Mix all the ingredients well without adding water.Onions will leave water while u mix.So mix everything together.

Step 3

Heat oil to deep fry.Take a tbsp of hot oil and add to the flour.Add ghee.Mix well.Then sprinkle few drops of water and make a dough.

Step 4

Put a drop of batter & check the heat of oil.If the batter comes up immediately,oil is ready.Reduce the flame to medium high & pinch in a portion of batter and drop in the oil in a sprinkled manner. Cook till onions turn golden brown.Remove in a tissue and enjoy eating hot with tea !

Note

  • Gram flour is used for binding and rice flour for crispiness.
  • You can follow the above recipe and make pakodas with kambu maavu or thinai too.
  • Hot oil is added to give crispy pakoda.Don’t skip it.Ghee is for softness.
