In a bowl mix together all dry ingredients then add egg, oil and small amount of water. Keep mixing and adding more water until it resembles a very thick pancake batter. Finely slice onion into rings and add to batter along with green chillies or chilli powder. Spoon drop into hot oil (can either be deep fried or in a pan with couple of inches of oil. and then turn down the heat. Cook on either side until browned (approx total 10-15 mins).
I served it with mayonnaise and green salad with avocado
They were a little firmer than normal pakoras, that are made entirely of gram flour, but tasty. Makes around 7-8 pakoras - very filling! The onion took longer to cook with this combination of flour.
I generally don't use measurements, work by eye and didn't make notes so have tried to work from memory.
