Finger Millet Pakora

Finger Millet flour: 2 cups
Onion: 1 big sliced vertically
Dry Red Chilli: 4 to 5 broken into small pieces
Salt: To taste
Water: As needed
Curry Leaves: 1 sprig
Drumstick Leaves: 1 cup
Oil: For Deep frying

Add the flour, onion, red chili, salt, curry leaves and drumstick leaves and mix it well. Add salt as well. Mix it thoroughly. Now add water little by little and make it a dough.

Heat oil in a tawa/Kadai/wok. Take a fist full of dough and make small irregular shape pakoras and put it in the oil. You can also squeeze the dough, so that it escapes through the fingers and falls into the oil. (Take extra care while doing this) Fry it till the color changes to dark brown. Remove it on to a tissue to absorb excess oil and then serve hot.

It doesn't need any special accompaniment. But if you need one you can use tomato ketchup. Wonderful snack. It is a healthier dish as well
