Onion Pakoras - deliciously crunchy and lightly spiced Indian fritters!
4-5medium onionssliced lengthwise
2 ½tbsprice flour
1tspred chilly powder
In a bowl, put all the ingredients, apart from the water. Mix them well and squeeze the onions with your hands so they release their juices. This will help form a batter without having to add too much water. Keep aside for 5 minutes.
Add a little water, just enough so you can form small fritters (the size of a walnut). Mix well.
Deep fry them in vegetable oil at 160°/170°C – 320°/340°F until cooked through and golden brown. Put them on a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain the excess oil.
