Portions: 10

Serving size: 5


1. Monsoon snack.

2. For occasional indulgence.


2 Onions

1 cup Besan (Gram Flour)

½ cup Rice Flour

½ cup Suji (Semolina)

½ tsp Jeera Powder

½ tsp turmeric powder

Oil for frying


1. Cut the onions longitudinally into medium thickness for cooking fast.

2. Mix rice flour, gram flour, semolina, jeera powder, and turmeric powder in a bowl.

3. Add chopped onions and mix lightly adding little water only. The mixture should bind together but little dry rather than of running consistency.

4. Heat the oil in a pan. When oil gets heated, using a teaspoon put the batter in oil to make pakoras.

5.Cook till light brown in color and take them on a plate lined with paper towel.

  • Tip: Making pakoras with less moisture instead of running consistency of the batter will absorb less oil and fry faster.

  • You can replace vegetables with many other ingredients. Ask your dietitian to individualize your needs.
