onion pakoda recipe | kanda bajji | pyaj ke pakode | onion pakora with step by step photo and video recipe. pakoda or pakora recipes are a common deep-fried fritters snack recipe prepared as an evening snack. these are a very easy and simple savoury snack to prepare, yet it can be tricky if certain basic steps and processes are not followed. this recipe post tries to cover 5 basic tips and tricks to prepare a crispy and layered onion pakoda recipe also known as kanda bajji.

i had posted this recipe long back, but i am re-posting it again with additional tips and tricks. in other words, i am trying to repost the video more comprehensively this time. instead of assuming things, i have tried to explain the steps in a detailed way. so in short, with this recipe, you would get a crispy and layered pyaj ke pakode. these pakoda’s not only can be served for evening snacks but also as starters and dumplings to kadhi recipe too. i have prepared these fritters as a multipurpose snack. these can also be used as a stuffing between pav to prepare bhajji pav which is my personal favourite. i have shared a dedicated post for it, but you may follow this recipe too. moreover, i have used a combination of besan and rice flour to prepare the crispy snack. while the besan is essential for this recipe, rice flour adds crispiness to the snack. you may increase the rice flour quantity to improve the crispiness of the pakoda.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the onion pakoda recipe. firstly, be extra careful while adding moisture or water to the besan and onion mixture. generally, onion slices do have moisture in them and are more than sufficient for the coating but if you feel you need water, add in batches. secondly, as an alternative to rice flour, you can also use cornflour for the same purpose. it should also make the pakora crispy but slightly impact the taste. therefore, if you have access to rice flour, do use it for better results. lastly, the pakora has to be deep-fried in a low to medium flame for evenly distribution of heat and eventually to cook it evenly. also, low flame makes it more crispy and brittle in texture.
