Great Pakoda recipe.The way it has been done looks very crisp and would make a great tea time snack. I am sure children and adults will all like the taste.

My Husband's favourite dish.. He loves to have it as a side dish for rice. In chennai there used be always a bottle of onion pakodas.
I have tried to make it at home but it turned out very hard. One of my friend told me to pour hot oil to the besan and not to add water as u suggested .Pakodas look crispy and good.
