Onion Pakoda


Pakoda has been one of my favorite snack since my school days. I have tasted it multiple times, but never tried preparing it so far. I wanted to give an attempt today. I am pretty much impressed with the outcome and it was very crispy like what we used to get from the savories store. I am planning to prepare this in little large quantity and save it in an air tight container.Winking smile
