Kanda Bhaji Pav / Kaanda Bhajji Pav / Onion Bhajji Pav / How to Make Onion Bhajji / Indian Bread Stuffed with Crispy Onion Fritters – Chat Recipes / Street Food Recipes

 Have you ever had onion bhajjis with a cup of tea in a rainy day.If you haven't tried, I would advise you to try it immediately..Because it is delicious..The hot crispy bhajjis will keep you warm and comforting through out the day…Hmm..I love that..

 I already have a ulli vadai recipe in my blog..I have written about my experience in that post..This is a simple version of onion bhajji. My mother makes this often but she has her own twist in making it. You can serve this bhajjis as it is, but I made onion bhajji pav with it to make a complete meal out of it. This pav recipe needs the chat chutneys, you can find the recipes in my blog..


Hope you like it and let me know what you think...
