On a cloudy and cold day all I want to do is turn on the heat, put on my favorite movie/show, sit back and sip on some hot coffee with a snack to go with it. But i guess its just not possible, not at least when you have a 7 month old crawling and pulling the stuff around the house. But luckily as my daughter slept for some time in the afternoon i decided i will make something deep fried.
Deep fried ha! Well, I have an excuse though: Its been a long time i fried anything and secondly,Ven has been pretty busy recently. So, thought as a treat lets make something he might enjoy.
Making pakoda doesn’t take too long because it doesn’t need that pre-soaking or lot of prepping.
Besan/gram flour/chanaga pindi- 1 cup
Rice flour/ Biyyapau pindi- 2 tbsps
large red onion – 1 ( cut to 1/2 inch thing slices)
Red chillie powder- 1/4th tsp or as desired
Salt- 1/2 tsp or as desired
Hot oil- 2 to 3 tsps
Chopped coriander/ cilantro- 2 tbsps
and some water
In a vessel mix the onion, chillie powder, coriander and salt. Now add the besan, rice flour, hot oil and mix it well. Now take some water and combine the whole mixture. Its important not to add too much water.
Deep fry the pakoda making sure not over crowding the pan. If not the temperature drops and the pakoda become saagi.
Enjoy the pakoda with a cup of coffee or tea.
