How To Make Black Sesame Onion Rings

  1. Blend the ginger, garlic, green chillies and curry leaves with a tablespoon of water into a coarse paste. Set the spice paste aside.
  2. Heat the oil for the onion rings over medium heat.
  3. Sift the flours and baking soda along with the black sesame seeds (kala til), salt and spice paste.
  4. Whisk everything gently and incrementally add water to create a thick batter. The batter should be a gloopy dropping consistency so it sticks to the onion rings.
  5. Drop in a few thick onion rings into the batter and coat thoroughly. Transfer them into the hot oil, fry until golden and crisp.
  6. Remove and drain on kitchen paper towel.

Serve hot with Curry Leaf Raitha.
