Onion Pakoda is a very crunchy and spicy snack and its my all time favourite. Most of us love eating pakodas. We can make pakoda using onion, peanuts, cashews and even with mixed vegetables. Besan / Gram flour is the main ingredient of the pakoda. But in this recipe, instead of besan as main ingredient we are going to use kambu flour (Pearl Millet flour) as the main ingredient. We are going to add besan and rice flour in little quantity but kambu  flour is the major proposition. Kambu Onion Pakoda is a very simple but crispy and tasty snack for a wonderful evening. When I did this dish first time, my whole family loved the pakoda and nowadays I am started using kambu flour pakoda instead of the conventional method.
