Onion Fritters Recipe

150g/ 5 oz (1 cup) gram (chickpea) flour

1 teaspoon rice flour

1 teaspoon ajwain seeds

3 green chillies, de-seeded and chopped

Few coriander (cilantro) leaves, chopped

Vegetable oil, for deep-frying

3 onions, sliced



Put the flours, ajwain, chillies and coriander in a large bowl.  Season with salt and mix, adding enough water to make a thick batter.

Heat enough oil for deep-frying in kadhai or deep, heavy-based pan to 180OC/350OF, or until a cube of bread browns in 30 seconds.  Working in batches, dip each onion slice in the batter and then carefully drop into the hot oil and deep-fry for about 2 minutes, or until golden brown.  Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper (paper towels).
