Spring Onion Pakoda

Spring Onion Pakoda

Spring onion Pakoda – A perfect monsoon snack! Its been pouring all day long and my palate has been craving for a deep-fried comforting snack. These pakodas have a soft texture as compared to the crispy ‘gatti pakodi’. Make for a wonderful savory tea time snack or appetizer.

    Good variation to traditional Pakodis Sailu.
