I found this snap as I was going through my old photos and decided to upload it to my blog and include the recipe. Pakodas are so famous in the Indian household that you just need an excuse to make them. We make it during the monsoon a lot and also nice to eat them on a cold day with a cup of chai.


2 cups Besan (Chickpea) flour
salt to taste
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 green chilly chopped
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1 onion chopped
I have used onions here but you can use almost any vegetable.
oil to fry


Mix besan, the spice powders and salt with enough water to make a thick batter.
Add the chopped onion into the batter.
Heat oil to fry.
Scoop up a spoon of the onion batter and pour into the oil.
Fry till crisp and red.
Enjoy with ketchup.

I don't know why we never made pakodas. But I guess, we had other fabulous foods to make and eat..:)
