37 ONION PAKODA

Onion Pakoda/Uthiri or Thool Pakoda.


A very simple and delicious pakoda/pakoras that can be made with less ingredients and served a snack.

You can make crunchy or crispy pakodas according to your need. If you want crispy and hard/firm pakodas, then add rice flour the same quantity as you add besan/chick pea flour.

Picture sent in by my Gomathi Athai

Onion - 2 medium cut lenthwise
Green chillies - 2 or 3 chopped fine
Ginger - 1/2 inch chopped or grates( optional)
Curry leaves - few chopped
Besan/chick pea flour/Kadalai maavu - 1 1/2 cup
Salt as needed

Fennel Seeds/Sompu - 3/4 tbsp(optional)
Oil for deep frying


In a vessel take onion, salt, green chillies and ginger. Mix well and leave it aside for 30 mts. This will leave out water. Later add besan flour and mix well. The water from the onions itself witll be sufficient enoug, if not spinkle some water and mix well so you get a mixture of dropping consistency.
Heat oil for deep frying. Drop this mixture in small quantity here and there and deep fry till crisp. Remove and serve.

In case you want very crisp pakodas add rice flour and mix with besan.
You can also mix besan along with onions and leave aside for the same time and follow the remaining steps.
