Very easy to prepare. This recipe is different from the usual onion pakoras we make at home with gram flour. Hope you will try and enjoy this recipe.
Onion- 2 medium
Gram flour- 1 cup
Maida- 1 cup
Ginger- 1 inch

Jeera- 1 tsp
Curry leaves- a few
Cilantro cut - 2 tbsp
Peanut oil- 2 tbsp( to mix with onions)
Peanut oil- to deep fry
Salt to taste
Slice the onions thin. I have used red onions. Grind green chillies and ginger.
Take a bowl. Put sliced onions, ginger and green chilli paste, jeera and peanut oil. Mix well. Now add Gram flour and Maida/ All purpose flour. Mix well. Now add salt to taste. Just sprinkle little water to the dough.
In a pan pour oil and heat it. Take some dough in your hand and drop little by little in the oil. Fry until brown and crisp. Drain excess oil on a sheet of paper/napkin. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy hot onion pakoras with tea, wine ....
