Onion Bhajji & Coconut Chutney

Hi Friends! I am here little busy in changing my blog design and taking sometime to makeup my blog!Will be back soon with the complete one!!!

Its raining here very well for the past four days. The climate is always so cloudy, the whole day. We are all enjoying the rain here. so, the climate tempted me to have something hot during the evening hours and so I prepared Onion bhajji day before yesterday. Its a good evening time snack with coffee. My son loved it and he was in the kitchen with me till i finish cooking it.


Onion (big Size) – 3 (cut into thin round slices)
Gram flour – 2 Cups
Rice flour – 1 Cup
Red chilli powder – 1tsp or as you like
Asafoetida – a pinch
Orange Color – 2 pinches
Salt – to taste
Cooking Oil

Cooking Instructions:

Mix gram flour, rice flour, salt, red chilli powder, asafoetida, and orange color with enough amount of water. The batter should be in the in the dosa batter consistency. If the batter becomes too watery, the batter won’t sick in the onion and instead it absorbs more oil while cooking. Dip the onions in the batter. The batter should be well coated on all the sides of onion.

Heat oil in a pan and slip the dipped onion piece in the oil and let it to deep fry. When one side is cooked well, turn it to the other side and let it to cook well. Once it is cooked, remove it from oil and drain the excess oil in a tissue paper.
