Submitted to Foodista by Crave Cook Click

2 big onions, thinly sliced
1 cup besan (chickpea flour)
½ cup rice flour
4-5 green chillies chopped
½ cup coriander leaves chopped
1 tsp carom seeds
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp red chilli powder
a pinch of baking soda
salt as per taste
Oil to fry

Mix all ingredients in a bowl except oil.

Add little water and merge everything with hands. You can add a tsp of hot oil in the batter to make it more crunchy.

Heat oil in pan.

Take a spoonful of kanda bhaji batter and pour it in medium hot oil. Don’t over heat the oil as it can burn the bhaji and keep it uncooked.

Let it fry for 2 minutes. Don’t stir frequently.

Turn to other side.

Remove it once it is golden brown in colour.

Serve it hot with chutney of your choice.
