Onion Pakoda | Pyaz Ke Pakore | Onion Fritters Recipe


http://indiankhanna.blogspot.com/2013/04/Onion-Pakoda-Pyaz-Ke-Pakore-Onion-Fritters-Recipe.htmlOnion pakoda is one of the pakora that I make most often simply cause I make onion pakoda very good and generally everyone prefer my onion pakoda than any other pakoda or bajji.  If I have guests at home then mostly for evening tea I will make this as this is my no-fail and crowd pleaser recipe.  I wonder now why I took years to post this recipe!

This is my mom recipe which I improvised with few additional items like rice flour, ginger, cumin powder etc.       Rice flour adds nice crunch to pakoda so try not to miss that though normally in North India rice flour is not added in any pakoras but I do add a little for that crunch.

If you look for something different or want to please your guest then you should try this, just make sure not to skip any ingredient.  This post is also for few friends whom asked me this recipe when then ate this at my place and ya I took ages to post but hey at least am doing it :)  The South Indian version of onion pakoda is different it's very crunchy and I absolutely love that & ya I shall post that too.  Though normally there's no left over of these pakoras as how much ever I make it's gets finished but on that particular Sunday I make this for breakfast and I had leftover as my brother didn't ate so stay tuned to know what I did with the leftovers.
