Onion pakora 😋😋

When it is rainy or cold, the best thing to do is to warm up with a cup of chai and a plate of piping hot pakora. Pakora (also called pakoda, pakodi or bhajji) can be made with almost anything. Potatoes, onions, most vegetables, paneer, chicken and even bread pakoras are very popular. The binding agent is chickpea flour or besan which makes these onion pakora naturally gluten-free and vegan.



There are a couple of ways to make pakora.There is no dearth of tea time snacks in Indian cuisine. These snacks can be an entire cuisine category on their own. From the bhajjis and vadas of South India to pakore and chaat from North India, the sheer variety of Indian tea time snacks will astound you. Most of these snacks are easy to make with just a few pantry staples.

ONION PAKORA {SPICED ONION FRITTERS – VEGAN, GF} – HAPPY&HARRIEDThe process of making onion pakora starts by slicing and salting the onions and letting them sit for a while. This makes the onions let out water and makes it softer and more pliable. Then when you add the flour, you will need very little water and the pakora turns out super crunchy on the outside and perfectly cooked inside.

Sliced onions 😁

I have been experimenting with cooking pakoras in an air fryer too and it works. It tastes slightly different from the deep-fried version of course, but if you are watching your calories, it is a good option. Just remember to spread out the onion fritters thinly when placing the batter in the air fryer bowl.

Ingredients :

Red onions – 2, medium-large
Salt – ½ tsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Red chili powder – ½ – 1 tsp (as per taste)
Garam masala powder – ½ tsp
Green chilies – 2, finely chopped
Cilantro leaves – 1 tbsp, finely chopped
Chickpea flour – 1 cup, sifted
Rice flour – 2 tbsp, sifted
Water – as needed
Oil – for deep-frying

How to make :

Using your hands, mix them together, separating the onion slices with your fingers. Rest for at least 15 minutes to let the onions soften.
Add chickpea flour and rice flour to the onions and mix well. Add water, a little at a time, to make a thick batter. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Heat oil in a large, deep pan. Drop spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil. Fry pakora in medium heat, flipping them over to cook on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.

A good pakora needs a good condiment to go with it. Ketchup is always a crowd favorite, but I also like to make a tangy green chutney to go with it.

Onion pakora are also great as a side for a traditional Indian meal, I especially love pakora with rice and dal curry. If you have never tried it, you definitely should.

      1. I will be honest…I and my wife cannot handle spices the way we used to! It’s a digestive thing. I can handle more than she can…but I’ve discovered I cannot handle the spices the way I used to. 😦 But this recipe SOUNDS AND LOOKS DELICIOUS, anyway! One of my former girlfriends—many years ago—came back from Thailand with curries of graded spice-hotness So I am aware of such things (and NO—she dumped me for someone ELSE!) BUT—My wife, Diana and I just celebrated our 31st. on June 3rd, this year!
