"Pakoras" are one of the most favored snacks in India. Usually the main ingredient for making pakoras are Gram flour/Besan. But these pakoras are made from Maida. Maida Pakoras are usually available in bakeries in Bangalore and can be stored for 3-4 days.

Ingredients:
Maida- 2 cups
Small rava- 2 tbsp
Rice Flour- 4 tbsp
Butter(melted)- 1 tbsp
Green chillies(chopped)- 4-5
Curry leaves- 5-6
Coriander leaves(chopped)- 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Red Onion(cut into 1 inch thin length)- 1 big
Water- very little
Oil- for deep frying
Cashwes(optional)- 10

Method:
In a bowl mix maida,rava,rice flour,butter,green chillies,curry,corainder leaves,onion and salt.Leave it for 5-10 mins.The water in the onion would have incorporated into the mixture (hence you need little water which makes the pakoras crisp after its deep fried).Add little water and make the batter consistency like chapati atta batter.
Heat oil in a pan.Drop the batter pieces one by one into the oil.Fry till golden brown and drain it on a paper.
Serve with chutney/sauces.
