Onion Pakoda

When I was preparing the bonda mix to make Egg Bondas, my daughter asked, "are you preparing "Onion pakodas" for me?" Onion pakodas became her favorite from when she tasted it in her father's "office party". from then, i used to mix extra flour whenever i am making bajji/bonda at home. 

Normally i do the pakodas with only the Gram flour. But this time, gave some extra kick to the taste by adding a spoon of bread crumbs to it. I have given both the methods here.




Here is the recipe for Yummy onion pakodas

Onion -1 (Medium size)
Gram flour - 1/4 cup

turmeric powder - 1/8 tea spoon
Perungayam - 1/8 tea spoon.
cumin seeds - 1/4 a tea spoon
salt - as per taste


Or if you have readymade Bajji/Bonda mix you can use that also.

1. Add gram flour and all the above said ingredients to a bowl
2. Cut Onions lengthwise (Preferably thin strips)
