Ingredients

Instructions

  • Cut the onion in half and peel the skin and outer thin layer off. Then thinly slice each half of the onion.
  • In a medium bowl add onion, cilantro and salt. Massage with your hands or using a silicone spatula to help release the moisture. Add gram flour, rice flour, green chili, garlic, red chili powder, turmeric, and carom seeds. Mix well to form a thick mixture. Add hot oil and give a quick mix.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • Divide the mix into 9 equal parts and then pick up each part and press down with your fingers to form a small patty (about ½ inch thick and 2-½ inches wide).
  • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place the Pakodas in the air fryer basket keeping some space between each one for airflow.
  • Air fry at 350 F for 10 mins. Open the air fryer and lightly spray oil on top and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until they become golden brown with crispy edges. Enjoy hot with green chutney or ketchup.
