Onion pakoda or kanda pakoda is a deep fried snack with onion as the main ingredient is mixed with some Punjabi spices and then mixed with gram flour to make the perfect batter which in turn would yield a ideal evening snack

The onion pakodas or kanda pakodas can be made in different ways. The recipe is the one which I am having since my childhood. A typical Punjabi recipe with the Punjabi spices.

Spices can be adjusted as per your taste. Check and adjust them before frying. These kanda pakodas or the onion pakodas are crispier than the other pakoda varieties. These really tastes good with a cup of strong hot tea.

Let it rest for about 10 minutes so that the onions would release water and then you can add water accordingly. In the meanwhile also keep the oil to get heated.
