Piyazi - Onion Fritters

I invited a couple of friends tonight for dinner and at the last moment without any solid reason they
called off the program saying they are not coming. I wonder how some people could be so
irresponsible, even if they would have informed at least few hours before, I would not have made
such huge arrangement for dinner. Now we would have to eat all of these for next 7 days. I am
thoroughly pissed off, not in a mood to write anything pleasant really.

The recipe of piyazi was waiting a long time now in the draft. In Bengali we know onion by the
 name of "piyaz". So as the name implicates, 'Piyazi' is onion fritters. We usually either have onion
fritters in the evening as snacks or have them as accompaniment to eat rice with dal. It suits both
the occasions perfectly.

Ingredients:                                                  Cooking time: 20-30 minutes
ü  2 onions (julienned)
ü  1/2 tsp nigella seeds or kalo jeera
ü  4-5 green chillies
ü  Salt to taste
ü  1/2 tsp turmeric powder
ü  3-4 tbsp gram flour or besan
ü  1 tbsp rice flour
ü  White oil for cooking
1) Mix in all the ingredients, except oil, together with 3-4 tbsp of water to make a thick mixture.
2) Heat 1 cup of oil in a wok and add tablespoon of the mixture into the hot oil and deep fry. Continue frying the onion fritters in batches.
3) Enjoy!!
