ULLI VADA / ONION PAKODA
Ulli vada / Onion pakoda is a quick and easy to make snack since most of the items are available at home .
Gram flour – 50 grams
Onion – 150 grams
Green Chillies – 10 grams
Red chilly powder – 10 grams
Fennel seeds – 5 grams
Water – ½ cup
Oil – to fry
Salt to taste
1. Finely chop the onions and green chillies.
2. In bowl, mix the onions, green chillies, gram flour, salt, red chilly powder and mix thoroughly with hand.
3. Crush the fennel seeds and add the same to the above mix. Add coriander leaves.
4. Add water little by little and make into a paste such that you are able to make balls out of it or any other shape.
5. In a kadai pour oil. Check if the oil is hot enough by dropping a pinch of the mix. It should raise in oil immediately.
6. Make small balls of the mix and drop in oil or else drop it in without any shape. I went for the second one.
7. Fry it until it turns dark brown. Remove from oil and keep it in a strainer/tissue paper to remove the excess oil.
Serve hot ulli vada / onion pakodas with hot tea. :) Note:
You can add one spoon of rice flour in the mix if you want the pakodas to be more crisp.

This meal is a simple meal can be prepared by anyone
It has Basmati rice, Dal, boiled egg,one mixed vegetable fry....
My kid is very finicky in eating vegetables so I used to prepare it for him and he like this...
For mixed vegetable you need to take all the vegetables which you like to eat....then cut it in small pieces.... In a pan put some oil and then put cumin seeds and whole red chillies...then put the onions over there and fry for some time...then add tomatoes on it and fry till the tomatoes completely mix with the onions...then add your cut vegetables and apply some salt,turmeric ,red chilli powder according to your taste...stir it and then cover the pan....after 5 mins stir it again and then your vegetables fry is ready to be served along with rice or with rotis.... Even we odian can eat it with murmure..... #instafood
I made this firni for my nephew's Haqiqa yesterday and it was the perfect dessert for a warm evening.
It was flavoured with Elachi and Kewra water, with plenty of golden sultanas, ground almonds and pistachios.
A perfect dessert for special occasions!
