This was a great recipe! I reduced the chickpea flour by 1/4 cup and added more curry leaves that I slivered, which tasted really good in the pakodas. Thanks for sharing.
I wanted to post this recipe, but then found it in the search. First of all, this is a great recipe and this is one dish we make at home pretty regularly being South Indians. But there are a few points to remember. The quantity of onions should be a little more than what is specified, around 3 big onions should be good enough, and we can reduce the amount of rice flour to around 1/2 cup and not 1 cup as mentioned. This would be enough to bring in the crispiness. Also, in step 8, ghee can be added in the place of onions for better taste. But on the whole, this is a great recipe and something everyone should try.
