Aloo-Pyaaz Pakoda

Come monsoons and who would not want to njoy sitting in the balcony with dear one and feast on yummy Bhajji/Pakoda and sipping hot cup of tea? The monsoon set in here sday and the first request for the season @ home was in the form of Pakoda. I used to always make these pakodas with onion only but recently one of my friends used potato also with it and we simply loved it. Here is the recipe.


Besan[Gram flour] – 2 cups
Rice flour – 1/2 cup
Ajwain – 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder – 1 tbsp
Hing – a pinch
Turmeric – 1/4 tsp
Salt – to taste

Onion – 1 large, finely chopped
Potato – 1 large ,finely chopped
Green chillies – 3-4, finely chopped [optional]
Coriander leaves – 3 tbsp, finely chopped


Mix all the above ingredients well by adding enough water. Now, take a large wok, add enough oil for frying and place it on low flame for oil to heat up. Now, test whether the oil is hot by dropping a li’l mixture into it. If the oil bubbles around it and the fried piece comes up, the oil is ready to fry the remaining mixture. Drop the mixture into the oil [3-4 at a time] and fry them well on all sides. Serve with tomato ketch-up or as it is and enjoy!
