Aloo pyaz ke pakode or bhajia as they are called in some houses are made in most of the houses and I am sure most of you already know how to make these. Still thought I will share my method with you.

We try our best to avoid fried foods but Sunday breakfast is exempt from this rule;-)

Two things we try are: we do not have fried food in the night because if we have fried heavy breakfast it will be digested by night but heavy dinner does not have time to digest.
Second, always drain fried food on paper towel or newspaper to remove excess oil.

Mix everything using as little water as possible to make a thick batter. We just want to coat the vegetables with besan so that there is a thin layer of besan on them.

Add 1 tsp of oil to the batter and mix. This helps in making the pakode crisp so do not skip this step.
