Baked Onion Pakora

I always try finding alternatives to deep-fried munchies! I simply love ‘Onion Pakora’… Actually, who doesn’t??? But deep-frying these pakoras do not work everytime… :(

Nearly a month back, I found a headline ‘Baked Onion Pakora’ while surfing through recipes posted on foodie group! And its picture was just so mouth-watering, I couldn’t restrain myself not trying it out… Last week only I tried it out for an evening snack with a cuppa tea :P Uhhhh!!! I didn’t mention where did I read that??!!!

With a minor change, I followed the original recipe posted by Roma Patil (from Roma’s Kitchen), with whom I got in touch via those groups only! Thank you so much RomaJi for this lip-smacking, healthy n quick trick to enjoy my favorite pakoras anytime :) Off you go with a recipe…
