Hara pyaaz pakora or spring onion fritters recipe – pakoras are one dish I don’t make often. So the recipe is made either in the monsoons or in the winters. These Spring onion pakoras were made in the winters and I had not posted the recipe then.

It has been raining heavily here and has been cloudy all the time, for more than a week now. Monsoons are great time to have hot hot pakoras with a steaming cup of masala chai. And its also a good time for me to post a pakora recipe 😉

These spring onion fritters have a crisp exterior and a soft texture from within. They are best served hot with some chutney – sweet or spicy and some bread or pav. Makes for a good tea time snack or brunch.

I served these hara pyaaz ke pakore with a thin pomegranate chutney and homemade brown bread. You can also serve them with mint chutney or coriander chutney.

Spring onions or scallions are easily available and with a few ingredients the pakoras are ready to be served in some time. Other recipes, where spring onions can be added are Spring onion paratha and Spring onion soup recipe. You can also add spring onions to Indo Chinese recipes like: 

To make these hara pyaaz ka pakora, the spices or masala has to be mixed with the chopped spring onions so that the juices are released. Then after adding the besan or gram flour, some water is added to make a medium consistency batter. Spoonfuls of the pakora batter mixture is dropped in the oil and shallow fried till crisp and golden.

  1. It’s been pouring today and what better way to spend indoors than with a cup of hot masala chai and pakodas.
    This was the first time I tried spring onion pakodas(had never heard about it before this)and it was simply WOW in taste. The saunf powder really adds to the flavor. So good that I just had it without any chutney or sauce. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.5 stars
