Rainy days and garama garam chai ke saath pakodey!!! That's the best combo when there are showers of rain and you cannot even imagine going out of your house. Yesterday eve although it wasn't raining here in New Jersey just felt like having pakodas. Hope you like it!
1 big onion cut into thin slices
1 cup gram flour (besan)
1 tsp red chilly pwd
1 green chilly finely chopped
salt to taste
2 tbsp coriander leaves finely chopped
1 tsp water if required
Oil for frying
In a big bowl take onions and separate each layer. Add red chilly powder, green chilly, salt and keep aside for 5 min. Add coriander leaves and gram flour, mix. Mixture will be slightly sticky. There is no need to add water but if you see any dry flour, add only few drops of water. Heat oil in a kadai. Put little at a time. Do not try to make the pakodas round. Cook on a medium flame till they are crisp. Irregular shape makes the pakodas crispy. We had the pakodas with adkrak ki chai (ginger tea).
