  • ½ teaspoon cumin powder [optional]
  • ½ teaspoon coriander powder [optional]
  • ½ teaspoon carom seeds
  • Chopped fresh coriander
  • Oil for deep-frying


  1. Cut the onions vertically in to thin layers and place the onions in a bowl and add the salt. Keep aside for 10-15 minutes covered.
  1. In to this bowl add the gram flour, rice flour, chilli powder, turmeric, carom seeds cumin powder, coriander powder, 4 teaspoon oil and chopped coriander and mix well lightly.
