Pyaz ke Pakore or onion fritters is one of the famous mansoon recipe, this easy to made snack recipe can be prepared along with tea on other burner of gas stove. Minimum preparations are required for this recipe, you can serve this with any chutney of your choice or simply with a cup of tea. Other fritters recipes of my blog are bread pakoda, spinach fritters. Ingredients required and detailed instructions for the recipe are as follows:
Onions: 2 big
Besan or gram flour-1 ½ cup
Green chillies-2
Crushed garlic pods- 5-6
Ajwain or carom seeds- ¼ teaspoon
Red chilli powder-1/2 teaspoon
Dry mint leaves powder-1 tablespoon
Oil – for deep frying
Water- ½ to 1 tablespoon
salt to taste

Beat this mixture thoroughly for 2-3 minutes so that it become light.
Heat sufficient oil in kadhai or wide pan  with the help of dry spoon take one tablespoon oil from kadhai and add it to pakora batter mix well.
Drop small size fritters in oil. First fry fritters on high flame as they start changing the color, adjust the flame to medium to low. Fry till crisp from both sides. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
Serve hot with tea .
Notes : If you want extra crisip pakoras you can add one teaspoon cornflour or 1 tablespoon rice flour to the mixture( I have used rice flour as seen in step by step instructions pic 1 image number 2)
Try to use minimum water, so that fritters turn out crisp
