Kanda Bajjis (Onion Fritters)

This is the fourth post for Blog Hop Wednesday started by Radhika of Tickling Palates– This time, I was paired with Bhagyashri of Taste Buds – She has a number of interesting recipes, but since I was shortchanged for time, so I picked a simple one although it was a fried one :( -AI am sorry to break the healthy spree of recipes that I’ve been posting with this universal favorite fried weakness! The dish is Kanda Bajji (pakoras or fritters) and here is the recipe with a few personal tweaks.

Ingredients
Besan 1 cup
2tbsp rice flour
1 big red onion
½tsp turmeric
3-4 Green chilies
Salt
A pinch of asafetida
Curry leaves
Grated ginger 1tbsp
Cilantro
Oil for frying
Preparation
Dry mix all ingredients except the onions and mix
In a wide pan, heat 1 tsp of oil and gently fry the onion without browning them too much – just to get rid of the raw taste
Add to the bowl and knead

I do not use any water in my mix – The water from the onion and the oil use to lightly fry is is plenty to knead this –
It should basically be some batter holding the onion strips together!

kanda bajjis
Heat the oil to fry and drop small quantities of batter to make the fritters
 Serve as is or with ketchup
