It’s been raining for 2 days and all I crave for is hot coffee and fried food! This is an awesome Indian snack which I do not make regularly, mainly because it’s fried, but some days are an exception.



3 medium size Onions, finely sliced

1/2 cup Gram Flour

1/4 cup Rice Flour

1/2 teaspoon Red Chili Powder

A pinch of Baking Soda

2 tablespoons finely chopped Cilantro Leaves

Oil, for deep frying

Salt to taste


  • Take the sliced onions in a large bowl
  • Add gram flour, rice flour, red chili powder, baking soda, coriander leaves and salt
  • Mix well using spoon and keep aside for 10 minutes (do not add water)
  • Heat oil in a deep pan over medium flame. Take small portions of the mixture by hand and gently drop 3-4 small fritters into the oil and deep-fry until they turn golden brown in color – keep stirring occasionally in between so that they cook evenly and keep the flame to medium
  • Take them out using slotted spoon and drain excess oil. Place them on paper towel in a plate to absorb excess oil
