Urad batter is generally associated with the South Indian vada, but here we have made pakodas with urad dal and it tastes absolutely awesome.

Onions impart a delectable crunch to the pakodas while a gamut of common but interesting additions like ginger, green chillies, coriander and spices give the fritters a mouth-watering flavour.

We have added a little bit of rice flour to the batter to give the Urad Dal and Onion Pakodas shape and crispness, so don’t omit it. Enjoy the snack hot and crisp with green chutney and ketchup.

These pakodas are so perfect for a monsoon with a garma garam cup of tea...the crispiness from outside and softness from inside make it really tasty.
