You will never believe these onion pakodas or fritters are baked in the oven and not fried! Now you’ll never have to say no. Enjoy the crispiest baked onion pakodas guilt-free anytime you want.
INGREDIENTS
 
  • 3 Onions large , spiralized or sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup Chickpea Flour (Besan)
  • 1/4 cup Rice Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Oil + Extra for brushing
  • 2 Green Chillies , finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 + 1 cup tablespoon Water
  • to taste Salt
INSTRUCTIONS
 
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200C. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or greased parchment paper.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl till there are no lumps. The batter might be slightly runny which is okay. It should just about coat the onions.
  3. Take a tablespoonful of onion batter at a time, shaking off any dripping batter and place them on the sheet at equal distance.
  4. Bake in the oven for 22 minutes till cooked through and the top is golden brown. Half way through, at about 15 minutes, brush the pakodas with oil and continue baking.
  5. Serve immediately with ketchup and coriander chutney. Storing these onion pakodas for later makes them soggy so eat immediately. Which is not a problem if you like to stuff your face like me.
