Onion thool bajji - a simple and easy snack recipe with onions. Like onion pakoda, this onion thool bajji is a quite popular snack during season time in our hometown Courtallam. I enjoy munching this thool bajji after a nice bath at main falls during every season time. As it is prepared with onion slices with a soft texture it is named as thool bajji.
Now coming to the batter ingredients for the bajji. Besan flour is the main ingredient and in addition we add rice flour and dosa batter for the crisp texture. Making the batter with the correct consistency gives the perfect shape and texture. Both vazhaikkai bajji and onion thool bajji have pretty much the same ingredients, but the water ratio is different and the way of frying too. Onions get cooked easily, so always deep fry them on medium heat and transfer it before the bubble ceases. You don't need to plan much for this thool bajji and you can make it easily for unexpected guests or for any unplanned occasions.
