• Onion - 1 big, chopped lengthwise
  • Besan - 1/2 cup
  • Rice flour - 1/4 cup
  • Corn flour - 2 tbsp
  • Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Corriander leaves - 1 tbsp, finely chopped
  • Curry leaves - few, finely chopped
  • Salt - as required
  • Oil - for frying
How to make it:

Mix all the flour, chilli powder, asafoetida and salt together. Add the onions, curry leaves, ginger-garlic paste and corriander leaves. Add enough water to make it a very thick batter (not like dough). Heat oil in a deep bottom pan, add the onions 2 - 3 pieces together at a time. Fry until brown. Take it on a paper towel to drain excess oil. Serve hot with a favourite chutney or sauce.
