  • For Onion Pakoda , always thin slices of onions.

  • Always add Semolina / Corn flour / Rice Flour . It’s very helpful to keep pakoda crispy for long time ..

So Lets see the detailed recipe..


  • 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp Chickpeas flour /  Besan
  • 4 big sized Red Onions
  • 4 tbsp Semolina / Rava / Sooji
  • 2 tsp Green Chili, finely chopped
  • Salt
  • 1 tsp Red chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Carom seeds / Ajwain
  • Oil to fry


Cut Onions into thin slices. Try to separate the layers .. Take all onions in a big vessel . Add Besan,  semolina,  ajwain, green chilli , red chilli powder , turmeric powder and salt ..

Mix all ingredients, add 2-3 tsp water. Make sure batter should be enough wet not watery. Just wet enough to coat onions . Watery batter wont give crunchy pakoda.

Take small small portion , spread on fingures with help of your thumb.  Reason to do so is, it helps to fry thin pakodas which will crunchy enough. Thick thick pakoda may not give that perfect result.

Fry on medium high flame till golden brown in colour . Serve Immediately.




Serve hot with Garlic Chutney, Coriander Chutney, Turmerind Sweet chutney and Fresh buns. I enjoyed with Green fried chillies together…
