Kanda Bhajji Recipe: How To Make Crispy Bhajjis At Home
X

Come monsoon and we crave for all things fried! Kanda bhajji is one of those recipes, if done right, can give a tough competition to the regular pakoras. Crispy on the outside, soft and sweet from the onions on the inside, is what a perfect kanda bhajji is all about. Pursing it between a laadi pav or scooping it with coriander and mint chutney until it melts in the mouth is indeed a perfect snack on rainy days. It is very differently made than the normal pakoras as this recipe uses no water to bind the dough. So, let's get frying, already!

Ingredients:

3 medium-sized Onions, sliced

1 1/2 cup Besan or gram flour

1 tsp Ajwain

1 1/2 tsp Salt

1 tsp oil

Oil for frying

Step 1: Finely slice the onions and crush it lightly, separating it from one another.

Step 2: Add the besan to the onions and let it sit for a while. The onions will leave its water and help bring the dough together, almost.

Step 5: Let it brown on both sides and you'll have a crispy batch of pakoras that go perfectly well with a cup of chai! Serve it fried green chillies and coriander mint chutney, tamarind chutney or plain simple ketchup.

As, other recipes suggest, adding 2 tbsp of rice flour to the dough could also create pakora magic. But, we like to stick to basic ingredients to make finger-licking dishes. So, what are you waiting for? Try this recipe and make the most of monsoons with this easy and quick recipe. Enjoy!
