Onion And Cashew Pakodi

The second week of this month Blogging Marathon and my theme for this week is fritters. First recipe I have decided for this theme is pakodis. All time favorite for every one, I make a few varieties of pakodis with mixed vegetables or just with sliced onion. When ever I didn't find any side dish for rice and sambar or rice and rasam or with any gravy I make pakodis. I don't know some how making pakodis is a very easy for me and pakodis are a favorite at home.. 
Valli and Veena This recipe is specially for you both
Let's check the recipe
