For making the kanda bhaji

  1. To make Kanda bhaji pav, firstly in a mortar put coriander seeds.
  2. With the help of a pestle, coarsely ground the dhania seeds. Keep aside. This is how it looks after coarsely crushing them.
  3. Peel and rinse 5 medium sized onions. Slice them thinly with the help of a sharp knife.
  4. Transfer the thinly sliced onions to a deep bowl.
  5. Slightly separate them using your hands.
  6. To this add besan. It helps in binding together all the ingredients.
  7. Now add the coarsely crushed coriander seeds. You can even add ajwain to elevate the taste of kanda pakora.
  8. Also, add turmeric powder and chilli powder.
  9. Add green chillies for spiciness, you can add more if you like your Kanda Bhaji spicy.
  10. Add coriander. Skip the coriander if you dislike or it is unavailable. Corainder would give a luscious taste to the Kanda Bhaji.
  11. Add salt to taste.
  12. Combine all the ingredients and mix well with your fingertips.
  13. Add the water gradually till the besan coats the onions well. We have used approx. 2 tbsp. of water. If the mixture looks watery later after 2-3 batches then additionally add 1 to 2 tbsp of besan and mix very well.
  14. Heat the oil in a kadhai. Check whether oil is sufficiently hot or not by dropping a pinch of Kanda Bhaji mixture in hot oil – if it comes upward immediately, then oil is sufficiently hot for deep frying all the Kanda Bhaji.
  15. Drop spoonfuls of the onion mixture using your fingers. Do not fry them over low flame, the onion pakoda will absorb too much oil and turn soggy. Also, do not over crowd the pan with kanda pakoras, or else they might not cook evenly. When the Kanda Bhaji have turned light brown in color from one side, gently flip them. Deep-fry the onion bhaji till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
  16. Drain the onion bhajji on an absorbent paper.
  17. Repeat with the remaining batter to make more Kanda Bhajis and keep aside.
  18. Serve the Kanda bhaji immediately with a cup of cutting chai
