Wondering why I back here with an other Onion pakodis recipes, or are you thinking if I have forgotten that I have already posted Onion Pakoras Soooo ????, what’s the big deal in it ???, well, I slightly changed it with some new Ingredient which gave it a different taste, so here I am with this!!, hope you all would try and like it!.
Onions are such wonderful vegetable, I think the whole world loves, and the I think the Onion Pakodis are the best in the world, nothing to compare or compromise on taste!, After coming here I noticed people here in Britain love these as much as we do, and they call it Onion Bhaji’s, and they are made a little different from the pakodis, I know that most of you know how it is done, may be some day I will post that recipe, just to make me feel that I ate those Bhajis here,when I lived here!!, someday…., when I am back in India.
From my childhood I loved onions so much, it was like a staple diet to me, even though Mum did not use onions the rate I use, I think there would no house without onions in their kitchen basket, So were we, I was kind of Introduced to eating onions raw by my Uncle, My Mom’s younger sister’s husband, sorry to bother you to read this but I just thought I would like to remember him, He was a wonderful person, with a wonderful attitude towards life, died which I felt was a young age of around 65. He loved having guests and gave them a royal treatment, I think my Aunt never missed a day where she would just cook for her family. Summer holidays were so good as we used to visit her or they used to visit us, it was alternatively done, as she stayed in KrisnarajaSagar Dam!, Oh!, I know how you might be wondering how somebody can stay in a Dam, well, there is a small town next to the dam I think people who have come from Mysore would know this and is called KRS!, Oh! I would like to write a lot about my days there may be next time.
Coming back to what I was saying, he used to chop some onions and keep it next to his plate and I should rather say not only me but all the three of us used to watch him eat it with his Rasam, Sambhar etc.., that’s how I got addicted to eating raw onions, it was and is so much better than eating poppodums or any other fried goodies!, An other friend of mine Mrs.Meena Murthy, one day introduced me to use onions as a substitute for fresh coconut with dry curries/ Palya!. I chop one or two onions with some of the dry curries I stir up.
Let’s get back to the recipe now! at last!…,
