Onion Methi Pakora

I saw this in t.v. The chef said it was chennai style pakoras, so i had to try that immediately :) I modified the original recipe with whatever ingredients i had with me at that time. It was good and i never tried the original recipe after that. The original recipe had a mashed potato and cilantro in it. I substituted cilantro with methi leaves as i love the slight bitterness it gives and i skipped potato.


Ingredients :

Onion - 1 large
Methi - 1 small bunch
Turmeric powder - 1/2 spoon
Hing - 1/2 spoon
Red chilly powder - 1 spoon
Besan -1/2 cup
Rice flour - 1 cup
Water - 1/4 cup
Ghee - 1 spoon
Oil to deep fry


Method :
Finely chop onions and methi leaves. Mix salt, chilli powder and hing and set it aside for few minutes. Meanwhile, heat the oil for deepfrying. When it is ready, add the besan and rice flour to the onion methi mix. Add the ghee and sprinkle the water and mix them well. I used little water (about 1/4 cup only) and the mix was just damp and crumbly. Now drop small pieces of the mix into oil and fry till they are golden brown. It was really too good :)

Enjoy with a cup of tea on a rainy day!
