Onion Pakora Recipe


Onion Pakoda| Onion Fritters || How to make onion fritters with step-by-step photos 

Onion Pakora is a quite crispy, delicious, and deep-fried snack made with gram flour, salt, spices, and main ingredients like onion or a vegetable. onion pakora is one of the most popular and much-loved snacks, especially during the monsoon and cold winters. These are very commonly prepared in most Pakistani homes for an evening snack and are served with a cup of masala chai or doodh patti chai


Onion pakora is also being sold in street stalls and restaurants, in most places onion pakora is served by sprinkling chaat masala and with green chutney_though I am not crazy about having the onion pakora than aloo pakora 

But sometimes I made onion pakora in the rainy season with roti and chutney or sometimes have it only with a hot cup of tea. A very easy and quickly deep-fried snack which you can serve to your unexpected coming guests :)  


Tips to make the best Onion Pakora:
  1. Gram flour: using good quality gram flour or besan is very important_store bought gram flour goes rancid very quickly and turns bitter within a few months. so always taste test the gram flour before using
  2. Preparing onions: to get evenly fried crisp onion pakora, slice the onions uniformly to thin_some thick or some thin  won’t yield you crispy, the thicker slices don’t fry well leaving the pakora soft, so slice them to moderately thin sizes
  3. Flour: traditionally pakora are made with gram flour, however, additional ingredients like rice flour, semolina, or cornflour is added in the street style and restaurant styles as these ingredients keep the fritters, so do use 1-2 tbsp of this in the recipe
  4. The temperature of oil: the oil has to be moderately hot enough before adding the fritters. if the oil is not hot enough-the pakora will soak up the oil. if the oil is too hot, then onion pakora will brown outside but will not get cooked inside
  5. Frying pakora: pakora has to be fried on a medium-high flame flying them on a low flame will make them hard-frying them on a high flame will burn them from the outside without cooking them inside

Chicken Puff Patties Recipe


Chicken Puff Patties | Puff Patties || How to Make Chicken Puff Patties with step-by-step photos

Chicken Puff Patties is a simple recipe that will take you back to the Desi chicken patties you used to get from the corner bakery. Crisp & flaky puff golden pastry filled with shredded chicken in a creamy white sauce.

Fresh from the bakery oven, these Desi chicken patties were (still are) one of my favorite childhood snacks. Crispy puff pastry that kept on flaking with every bite, the ‘milky’ chicken filling, and the top circle of puff pastry that we would eat plain or dip in tea. The round ones were always stuffed with chicken, and the triangle ones were usually stuffed with potatoes/vegetables.


The trick to making delicious chicken patties are the white sauce – it’s what binds the shredded chicken together and gives it that characteristic bakery flavor that we all love it.

Start with rolling the puff pastry. Make sure you use a proper board or a rolling sheet. Sprinkle lots of flour. Don’t let the puff pastry stick to the board.
