This a quick and easy Indian-styled snack.

  • Cornflour - same
  • Rice Flour - same (optional)
  • Turmeric powder (optional)
  • Baking soda (optional) - a pinch


  1. Dice our onions and thinly slice the green chillies.
  2. Mix the three flours in a bowl with salt and turmeric. Add a few drops of water and stir to make a thick paste without lumps. Add baking soda if necessary.
  3. Beat eggs into it.
  4. Add onions and green chillies.
  5. Take a deep frying pan and fill it with oil. Put over flame.
  6. When the oil heats up, pour spoonfuls of the syrup into it.
