Kanda bhajiya/onion fritters/pyaaz ke pakore

When one has kids In the house and they wanna eat something, you have to give them straight away, they won’t wait for rainy season or winter season…you might be thinking what am I trying to say..let put it this way

Mid summer ,Nagpur temperature is already 43 degrees and my kids wanna have kanda bhajiya (onion fritters)…so their wish has to be my command..here you are kanda bhajiya with tea .I do avoid deep-fried food,but once in a while is ok



4 onions finely sliced long

2 cups besan (chickpeas flour)

1/2 tablespoon coriander seeds

1/2 tablespoon haldi powder (turmeric)

1/2 tablespoon ajwain (carrom seeds)

1/2 tablespoon red chilli powder

1/2 tablespoon coriander powder

2 tablespoons oil (to add in the batter)

5 to 6 green chilies finely chopped

4 to 5 curry leaves

Some coriander leaves

1 1/2 tablespoon salt or as per taste



Finely slice the onions long and mash them with your hands so that they break more even

Now add all the masalas given in the ingredients with the oil.Except salt

Give it a nice mix with hands so that masala is coated properly on the onions

I prefer less besan in my bhajiyas so have added in equal proportion, otherwise it’s only besan in our mouth ,one has search the onions (lol)

Now add the besan ,again mix it dry first,then water to a thick consistency and salt as per taste

Heat a kadhai on medium flame and take small portions with your hands and slide them in the oil

Once its set and starts getting the colour flip it on the other side

Keep stirring both the sides till golden brown in colour


Your piping hot kanda bhajiya/pyaaz ke pakore/onion fritters are ready to be served with spicy coriander chutney

Enjoy it in any season
