Onions are a versatile ingredient in our cooking. Be it snacks, side dishes, main dishes, pullao, briyani, seasoning, et al we need onions No matter what the price we go for them. When it comes to needs one never looks at the prices. Onions come under the 'needs' category. On a rainy day nothing like onion pakoda with a hot cup of tea. Onion are chopped fine lengthwise A thick gram flour batter to which salt, chilli powder and ajwain is added is prepared. Onion strips are dipped in the batter and small lumps are made and deep fried in oil. Eaten hot with a cup of tea Image Credit:https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rosted_Onion_Pakoda.JPG

I like pakoda (we call them pakora here), not only onions, other vegetables mixed to onions. I have to go to Italy to buy gram flour, that is not available here.

Yes. Pakoras is the word but the Net calls it pakoda. Many vegetables are used for making pakoras.

Very simple to make. Do you get gram flour where you lie?

Those sound delicious. We buy onions whatever the price (within reason) as nothing can really take their place.

They are not eaten daily but occasionally Use absorbing paper to absorb the oil
