Author Notes: Onion Bhajias are a common favorite in most of the Indian homes.They also are a popular street food all around India.
They can be served as starters or as a yummy tea time snack on cold winter evenings or on lazy rainy days. Bhajias have a special place in my heart.Back in school and college days we used to thrive and eat them whenever hungry at street corners or at home.
I love to make this delicious snack and watch the family flock to the table-every time!.
