Onion fritters (pakoda) step-by-step recipe with photos.
Hot pakodas and a cup of masala chai (tea) – this will never go out of fashion on a rainy day. This is something every household in India has enjoyed for generations. Pakoda can be made with many vegetables, but nothing matches the taste of the onion pakodas. This oh-so-good snack is served with mint chutney or tomato sauce. But who needs accompaniments when something tastes this good anyway!
Pakoda or pakora or bhajiya is a well-known snack as well as street food that is popular across India. I think if there is one snack that is common across most regions in India despite different cuisines, it is this. This simple dish is made by combining thinly sliced onion with besan (chickpea flour) and a few slices.
