Ingredients:

1 cup thinly sliced onions or 1 large onion, sliced thinly (kanda)

½ cup besan (gram flour or chickpea flour)

1 teaspoon oil to mix in the bhaji batter

1 teaspoon salt or add as per taste

Oil for deep frying

Method:

Making Kanda Bhaji Batter

1. Slice the onions thinly and place them in a mixing bowl or vessel. Add 1/2 cup of besan (gram flour) to the sliced onions.

2. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of salt or as required. Add 1 teaspoon of oil to this mixture. You can even add less salt, but these pakoras taste better when they are a bit salty.

3. With your fingertips mix the besan, salt and oil very well with the onions well. Allow the mixture to rest for 5 to 6 mins, as the onions would leave moisture.

4. If the mixture looks too moist then add 1 to 2 teaspoons more of the gram flour.

Frying Kanda Bhaji

5. Heat oil for deep frying in a deep pan/vessel or kadai.For crispy bhajis ensure the oil is hot.

6. You could do a small test by adding a pinch of batter to the oil if it rises smoothly and gradually, then adds spoonfuls of the batter to the hot oil.

7. Fry the kanda bhajis on a medium flame, or else they won't fry evenly. While frying, flip the bhajis with a slotted spoon. Fry a few bhajis at a time.

8. Fry them till they turn crisp and golden brown. Remove the onion bhaji with a slotted spoon and place it on absorbent kitchen napkins or kitchen paper towels.

9. In the same way, fry the rest of the onion bhaji. Serve hot with fried green chillies, spicy green chutney or tomato ketchup.
