Coriander leaves ... handful
Cumin seeds  or ajwain .... 1 tsp
Baking soda ... a pinch
Red chilli powder .. 1/4 tsp
Salt ....... to taste
Oil ..... to fry

Method:
1. Mix all the ingredients except oil to make a batter of dropping consistency.
2. Heat oil in a kadai.
3. Drop the onion with hand seperating it ( don't pour chunks like big pakoras )
4. Remove when crisp and golden brown.
Serve with chutney / sauce
