    Crispy pakodas is a famous snack found in street side stalls from many years even before chat stalls appeared in Andhra. The key to these pakodas is adding as little water as possible, just enough to coat the onions.

    Preperation Time: 30 Minutes

    Servings: 3-4


    1. Besan Flour / sanagapindi – 1 Cup
    2. Onions – 1 cup, finely sliced length wise
    3. Salt – 1 teaspoon
    4. Coriander seeds – 1 teaspoon, lighly crushed
    5. Masala Powder – 1/2 teaspoon
    6. Green chilies – 3, finely chopped
    7. Baking Powder – 1/2 teaspoon (or a pinch of baking soda)
    8. Oil – to deep fry

    Cooking Procedure

    1. In a wide bowl swift together besan flour, salt, baking powder and coriader seeds and keep aside.
    2. Heat oil to deep fry. When the oil is getting heated, mix the chopped onions with the besan flour fix. Sprinkle very little water on the flour, and mix so that the flour sticks to onions and its not powdery any more. Donot add more water as it gets soggy and wont turn crispy. (Not more than 3-4 table spoons for 1 cup of flour)
