Onion Pakoda is a very easy and simple recipe to make. You can make this snack in 10 minutes so it is very handy when you have an unexpected guest or even for a kids evening snack. Onion Pakoda is a famous snack in the UK and they call it Onion Bhaji. Few of our English friends enjoy eating Onion bhaji so this recipe is mainly for those friends who requested me to make this video. I have added very few easily available ingredients but you can change few ingredients according to your taste. Adding curry leaves gives extra flavour but I have skipped that part to make it easy for the people in the UK.
Serving option: You can serve Onion pakoda with tomato sauce or tamarind sauce.

Tips to make perfect Onion Bhaji:
1. Sliced onions are better than the chopped ones.
2. Do not add more water then the binding will not stay well while frying.
3. You can even add curry leaves but it is optional.
4. Fry them on medium heat to cook from inside.
5. You can even add little garam masala for extra flavour.
Here is the step by step process of Onion Bhaji/Onion Pakoda:
Take 2 sliced onions in a bowl, add finely chopped green chilli,
¼ tsp ajwain, salt to taste,
¼ tsp turmeric, ½ tsp chilli powder,
¼ tsp coriander powder, 2 tbsp coriander powder,
½ cup besan flour, 1 tbsp cornflour and mix everything well.
Now add very little water and combine everything well.
Bhaji mix is ready to fry.
Take some oil in a frying pan, make small patties from bhaji mix and drop slowly in the oil. Fry them on medium heat till they are golden brown.
Remove from oil and serve with any dip of your choice.
