Peyaji (Onion Fritters)

Difficulty: Easy | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins| Yield: 12 pieces

1 Large Onion
1 cup Basan
2 Green Chillies*
Salt to taste
Oil for Deep Frying


  1. Finely slice the onion and chop the green chillies.
  2. In a bowl take the onions and the chillies.
  3. Add the besan and the salt (about ½ tsp). Mix well.
  4. The salt will soften the onions a little and will allow some water come off it. This will be enough to bind the mixture. If not, add just a little water so as to get the onions to stick to each other.
  5. Now heat enough oil for deep frying.
  6. Take about a table spoon full of the mixture in your hand and put it into the oil. Repeat for the rest of the mixture.
  7. Fry on medium heat so that the peyajis are crisp from within.
  8. Serve hot with tea or coffee..
*You may increase the quantity of these if you wish to make the fries spicier.
