Pyaji (Bengali Onion Pakora)

Onion pakora is known as Pyaji in bengali...it's one of a kind mouthwatering snack.....have them with tea as an evening snack or have it as a side dish with dal, chawal(rice).


While making onion pakora, I took this onion and garlic still life picture for this month's Click photo event : Allium @ Jugalbandi.


Ingredients :
Onion(big) : 2 (chopped)
Chick pea flour(besan) : about 1/2 a cup or as needed
Green chilli : 2( finely chopped)
Fresh coriander leaves (chopped) : a bunch
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder : 1-2 tsp.
Baking Soda : a pinch
Oil for shallow deep frying


Method :
  • In a big bowl, first take onions, green chillies and coriander leaves.
  • Then add all the other ingredients. Mix together, then add water slowly as needed and make a smooth creamy batter, not runny.
  • If the batter is too thin, add some more chick pea flour.
  • In a pan, heat enough oil, drop one big spoonfull of batter, one by one. Make pakoras thin, then it will be more crispy. Fry till dark brown from both sides. Fry in medium flame so that inside of batter can cook.
Serve hot immediately with tea..................

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.
