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!. —Renuka Swaroop

coffee powder gives that piquancy
Serve this with a special sauce made with tomato ketchup,soy sauce and 1/4 tsp black coffee and honey .Just mix the ketchup,soy sauce,,black coffee,honey and warm it.
Coffee gives a subtle pleasantly sharp and appetizing flavour and spiciness to the bhajiyas.....not to mention the sauce.
