Cauliflower Onion Pakoda

We are entering the last week of blogging Marathon #50 and for this week I chose,pick one category or do 3.For this theme already 3 set of lists such as snack,potato based and fried were given.We need to choose either 3 dishes from the same category or one from each of the list. For day 1 I am sharing  a pakoda with sliced cauliflower and onions,as its listed in the snack category.As we had a snow last week we wanted to have some crunchy snack.So made this pakodas for evening snack along with a cup of tea.
Here I used the homemade made pakoda mix,if you don't have it,go ahead and use the gram flour and rice flour.This version is a slightly crispy and crunchy variety,lets move on to the recipe...........................

                                                                                                    Cauliflower Onion Pakoda


   Basic Information

   Preparation time ~15 minutes
   Cooking time ~ 15-20 minutes
   Serves ~ 3


Bajji,bonda mix1 cup
Cauliflower(sliced)3/4- 1 cup
Onion(thinly chopped)2(small size)
Green chilly/pachamilagi2-3 (sliced)
Curry leaves/karivepillai2 sprigs(chopped)
Coriander leaves(chopped)1 tbs
Turmeric powder1/4 tsp
Fennel seeds/sombu1 tsp
Garlic/poondu2 fat cloves
Salta pinch
Oilfor deep frying


  • Pound together the garlic and fennel to a coarse paste,heat the pan with oil in a medium flame.Add a pinch of salt to the sliced onion,crush and mix it well.
  • Take everything in a bowl except oil.Now to this add a tbs of hot oil,mix it well without adding any water.(The moisture in the onion is good enough to make the batter,if needed sprinkle little water).

  • Once the oil becomes hot,take a handful of batter and sprinkle it in the oil.Fry it in a medium flame till it becomes nice and golden.Remove it from the oil and drain it on a paper towel.

  • Serve it warm along with a cup of tea.

  • If you are using gram flour and rice flour,for 1 cup of gram flour use around 2 tbs of rice flour,2 tsp of maida and 1/2 tsp of red chilly powder
  • Since salt is added in bajji,bonda mix,I used a pinch for the onion.
  • Instead of cauliflower,shredded cabbage can also be used.
  • A tsp of ginger&garlic paste can also be added for extra flavor.
