Onion Fritters

This is my all time favourite.. goes well as a snack.. or as a side dish for rice...
Ingredients for making Onion Fritters:
  • Rice Flour - 1 cup
  • Bengal Gram Flour - 1/2 cup
  • Onion - Chopped in to thin strips
  • Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - according to taste
  • Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda - a pinch
  • water - to sprinkle
  • Curry Leaves - few (optional)

Method for making Onion fritters:

Step 1: Cut and peel the onions into thin strips and keep aside..

Step 2: Heat cooking oil in a deep frying pan.

Step 3: Mean time mix all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and add the cut onions,curry leaves and sprinkle little water and mix them nicely.(use as little water as possible)

Step 4: Once the oil is ready for deep frying...take a handful of dough and pinch into small pieces and drop them in oil and deep fry or just drop small pieces of the dough with the help of a spoon to the oil.

step 5: Turn them in between and cook. Remove from oil once they become reddish brown in color...this ready to serve.

Step 6: Continue the same till the dough is complete... serve it warm..

These Onion Fritters can be served warm as snacks with Tomato Ketchup or With Indian style Chutneys...

I served this as a side dish for dinner with Garlic Rasam and Parrupu Thogayal
