I have bought many onions and ginger garlic for making different snacks to eat at iftar time. I have told my wife to cook various snacks with it. We would prepare onion pakora, spaghetties, pasta, rolls, and different fritters etc.

Onions fritters do use a very few ingredients like just onions, gram flour and chili powder but they taste good , even better than other snacks sometimes. And onions are always there at home so you don't need to go especially to the market to buy them , so it becomes an easy one to make. I'll choose it the most to make in ramadan month.

simply nice. I like all kinds of pakore such as chicken, methi and pyaz. All I want in pakora is the limit of oiliness . If there is too much oil , which is a big problem while serving pakora, it is difficulty in eating. So I always get satisfied first about removing the oil and then I serve in the platter.

Onion is always at home as it is a regular part of ration. So it comes every 1st of the month for whole month. This is the easiest option for me to make at home, I like its taste too so I prefer it over other pakora and in the coming days, I am also looking to make it in ramadan.
