It's a Saturday and raining since last night...and its suppose to rain on Sunday too! I heard that ragi is so good for cough and cold..As I want to make the rainy day cozy I made ragi-onion pakoda served with masal Chai. One way, I can get chance to use the Ragi flour which was sitting ..sorry sleeping in my pantry for quite a long time :)

Ragi Flour - 1 cup
Onion - 1 big size
Cumin seeds - 1tbsp
Fenel seeds - 1tsp
Pepper corns - 5-6 slighlty crushed
red chilli powder - 1ts
Turmeric - 1tsp
Hing/Asafotida - pinch
Dry methi leaves - 1tbsp (optional)

Mix the chopped onions with cumin, fenel, salt, dry methi, turmeric, hing, pepper, chilly powder, add the ragi flour, salt and mix everything together with less water. It should not be too thick or too watery. All onions should be nicely coated with ragi flour.
Heat oil, drop a spoon full of flour in to the oil and deep fry the pakoda till it gets crispy.
Serve it with chutney or with masala Chai
