Today the weather was a little cold. We went out for egg hunt this afternoon and came back home. We didn't have any other plan for the evening. Chilly weather and lazy evening - what else reason you need for pakodas??
Besan Flour, 1 cup
Onions (finely chopped), 1 no.
Curry leaves, 2 sprigs
Cilantro(finely chopped) handful
Turmeric Powder, 1/4 teaspoon
Chilli Powder, 1/2 teaspoon
Asafoetida, a pinch
Salt to taste
Butter- 1 teaspoon
Water, to knead
Oil, to deep fry
- In a bowl, combine flour, turmeric powder, chilli powder, asafoetida ,salt and to this mix onion, curry leaves & cilantro.
- Add water little by little to this mixture till they are incorporated well. Then add butter to this and mix well.
- Heat oil in a deep pan and drop the spoonful of batter one after the other into the oil. . Avoid overcrowding as they will not result in crispy pakoda.
