Onion Bhaji

Once a while, we love to have some deep fried snacks and its has been a long i prepared bhaji with onions, its our family's favourite deep fried dish, eventhough i do prepare rarely, its holiday here and needless to say that how busy i am now and trying to making out some usual snacks for our evening  which was quite a routine now, when the climate is too cold and rainy..Enjoyed having this crispy fritters for our yesterday's evening snacks with some coffee..My mom used to add idli batter  and corn flour while making out this fritters and i do the same while making out bhajis with any veggies, that turns the bhaji really very light and crispy.


2nos Big onions(sliced as round circles)
1/2cup Gram flour
1/4cup Corn flour
1/4cup Rice flour
1/2tsp Fennel seed powder
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/4cup Idly batter
1pinch Baking soda
1pinch Food colour (optional)
Salt
Oil

Mix the gram flour, corn flour, rice flour, fennel seed powder, red chilly powder, baking soda, idly batter, food colour, salt and some water as thick batter, heat the oil for deep frying, dip the onion slices to the prepared batter and deep fry them until they turns golden brown..

Fry them in batches and serve with spicy coconut chutney!!

  5. Oh... Thats making my mouthwater.. I love onion bhaaji.. yours is a bit different with idli batter.. Really its looking very crisp.. Adding rice flour should also do the trick if we dont have idli batter?
    Lovely captures!!

  44. When I am cooking I usually use onion in all my meals because I think it have many properties, antioxidant and vitamin. So i prefer a food that make me feel strong every day. This blog is absolutely interesting. In fact i was looking information about how to buy viagra by internet. But this blog catched my attention, I must to say is wonderful.
