1 cup gram/pea flour
2 Tblsp flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp crushed green chillies
1 tsp cummin powder
2 tsp dhania powder
1/2 tsp whole cummin
1 medium sized onion, sliced
2 lettuce leaves, chopped
1 tsp salt
Mix all the above ingredients. Add half cup water and mix. Add water a tablespoon at a time if required. Batter should be of a medium consistency – not too thick nor should it be watery.
Spoon tablespoons or use your hands to scoop small amounts into hot deep oil. Fry until golden on both sides.
– If oil is too hot the batter will brown too quickly and the inside will be uncooked.
