Pakora Recipe-Indian Onion fritters with a Kick!!

Hey All! I am so exhausted from this past week i JUST got up! And i am not one to sleep in...I could even sleep some more! Anywho, for today's surprise post I wanted to share a fun recipe that is just delicios! The Pakora is a snack eaten during special times like the breaking of the fast each night of Ramadan~I have become the official preparer of the fast breaking goodies in my parents home and have been making these almost every evening...So i thought I would share the recipe with you!! Ingredients:
1) Gram Flous (Gluten FREE!! So this is awesome for any parties you may host)
2) 1 Large onion
3) Olive oil
4) Hot green chilies if you like
5) 1 tsp Salt,
6)1/2 tps pepper,
7) 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper,
8) 1/2 tsp herbs de provence,
9) 1/4 tsp garam masala (from your local Indian Grocery spice section)

To do:
1) Peel and cut onions. You want small, chopped pieces like what you would use in a salsa or tuna salad.

2)Chop chilies

3) Combine about 1.5 cup gram flour with water and whisk together. You want a slightly thick consistency that is not goopy but more like a very very thin batter.

4) Add spices and whisk well

5) Add in all the onions and chilies. There should be a lot of the vegetable mixture and just a little extra of the liquid mix

6) Heat a small frying pan with 2 inches of oil

7) When it is hot oil, take a serving spoon to measure out small amounts of the mix and fry. Turn and fry other side until both sides are a light brown gold color (if you want to see it's done, while in the pan, you can poke holes with a fork and slightly press down with the spatula...if there is no liquid coming out, it is done!)

8) use a slotted spoon to put into a colander that is line with paper towels to drain oil

9) repeat until all the mix is used up!

10)VOILA! Serve with ketchup :)

Serves 4.

I hope some of you will try this recipe and let me know your thoughts!!

See on wednesday for the weekly wishlist!!
