Monsoons are here and how! We don’t know about you, but there is something about the nippy, rainy evenings that intensifies our craving for all things cliched. Yes, you must have guessed it – we are, in fact, talking about a cup of masala chai and pyaaz ke pakode. But to think that’s the best you can get out of onions, you are probably mistaken. Onion’s versatility has inspired chefs around the world to come up with a gamut of snacks and starters. We handpicked some of our favourite onion snacks, have a look at these recipes!
1. Fried Onion Rings
Perhaps the easiest snack on our list. The classic starter recipe is actually quite a cakewalk to make at home. Serve these crispy batter fried onion rings with sour cream dip or mayonnaise.
