Spring Onion pakoda recipe

Spring onion pakoda is a crispy tea time snack. Generally we use spring onion for garnishing fried rice. I also use this to make Spring onion besan Zunka. So i rarely buy spring onions. When i visited the wet market yesterday, found these fresh spring onions and got a bunch of them too. While returning from the market, was thinking as what to make for today's post, suddenly this idea of spring onion pakoda flashed my mind and took a video of the same. It turned out so well and everyone at home loved it. If you are looking for Thanks giving recipes,then you can try this out for sure. Check out my
