Onion Pakoda Recipe

Written By Angela Steffi on Thursday, February 16, 2017 | 8:24:00 PM

Onion Pakoda also known as vengaya pakoda is a crispy snack recipe which is very famous in Tamil Nadu. Thinly sliced onions dusted with a spicy flour mixture and then fried until crisp which makes a perfect tea time snack. I am a very big fan of this onion Pakoda and I always make this crispy snack for coffee during rainy days and enjoy sightseeing. This recipe is little different from onion Bajji, for bajji the consistency of the batter is little runny whereas in pakoda we should sprinkle water just enough to hold everything together and do not add too much of water. The specialty of this crunchy onion pakora is smells great as soon as you enter home and makes us crave for more.
