THOOL PAKODA RECIPE | DEEP FRIED ONION FRITTERS

   Thool pakoda | Onion Pakoda is a popular snack, though I make it rarely at home, everyone loves it. I personally love to have this with curd rice  though it is a tea time snack. I think most of you will love this curd rice and onion pakoda combo too.

  • Mix well. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  • The water must have oozed out from the onion and normally that moisture is enough to bind the mixture.
  • If want add 1-2 tblsp of water.

  • Take out from oil once it turns golden brown and the oil sound subsides.
  • Drain in the kitchen towel and repeat for the rest of the mixture.

  • Enjoy with hot filter coffee or tea. These pakoda will be very crispy even after 2-3  hours if you store in an airtight container.
  • Crushed garlic pods can be added to get a garlic flavored pakoda.
