Kanda Bhajji ( Onion Fritters )


Finally the rains have arrived in Mumbai and its green n fresh everywhere. Though I personally don't like the monsoons in Mumbai because it causes water logging, gutters overflowing , late running trains and a whole lot of other problems, its a fact that we need water for the coming year. And so it was a great relief that finally rains decided to visit us. 

Now rains and hot pakodas / bhajia with chai / tea are synonymous and so I had to celebrate the first rains with some hot pakodas to munch on. So I made the famous  kanda bhajii ( onion fritters / pyaz ke pakode ) yesterday and we enjoyed them at tea time. 

So you too give them a try and do let me know how they turned out.




Ingredients :

2 to 3 ......................Onions ( peeled and thinly sliced )
1 tsp.......................coriander seeds ( roasted )
2 ..........................green chillies ( very finely chopped )
2 tbsp....................fresh coriander ( finely chopped)
1/2 tsp...................turmeric powder
4 to 5 tbsp...............besan ( gram dal flour )
salt
oil for deep frying


Method :

In one bowl mix all the ingredients in a bowl except oil and besan.

Do not add water water as the onions will start leaving little water.

Now add besan and mix everything well.

The besan should just coat the onions and shouldn't be like batter consistency.

Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.

Drop spoonful of mixture in pan and fry till crisp and golden .

Serve hot with a cup of tea on a rainy evening.
