Today we share a simple Indian pakora made from the combination of semolina and onion.

Ingredients needed:


Medium sooji or chiroti sooji – 1 cup
Finely chopped onions – 1
Sour yougurt – ½ cup
Jeera – 1 spoon
Curry leaves – 10 to 12 leaves chopped
Coconut grates – 4 spoon
1 long chilly chopped
Hing – a tiny pinch
Chopped ginger – 1 inch piece
Salt – according to taste
Cooking oil – for deep frying

How to prepare Semolina (Sooji) and Onion Fritter (Pakora):


Pour cooking oil in a thick bottomed kadai and heat under low flame. We will use the hot oil for deep frying the vada/fritters/pakora (as you call it!).

Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients (except oil) and mix well.

The mixture should not be water. Consistency should be such that, you should be able to make tiny balls out of the mixture.

Now, take a flat plate and grease it with oil (if needed). Dip your hands in water and make sure your palm is wet. Else you will not be able to pat the vada into a flat shape.

Place a small ball of the semolina-onion mixture on the greased plate and pat it flat with the help of your fingers.

When the oil is hot enough for deep frying, drop the vada in the oil.

Fry until deep golden brown.

Remove the vada from the oil and place on tissue paper so that any extra oil on the fritters will be absorbed by the tissue.
