Tea under the cherry tree...:):)

The weather is quiet warm and humid here.The evenings get cooler with blowing of sea breeze. It's common sight to see people escaping to beaches, parks and to their terrace in the evenings to refresh themself. We too like to spend our evenings in the terrace garden with cup of hot tea and some snacks  to munch. 

Our cherry tree is full of red fruits and  doing a tea setting under the tree with red wares looked good. I prepared the onion bhajis a snack quite popular at every Indian house hold.  It's tasty and quick to prepare. People of all ages love it. The recipe is given below the post. Thank you for your visit.  

Onion Bhajis

Gram Flour---1 and 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder---1/2 Teaspoon 
Coriander Powder-- 1/2 Teaspoon
Red chilli powder-- 1/4 teaspoon
Pepper powder--A pinch
Asafoedita--A pinch

Method: Add flour in a big bowl. Put in all the above spices and salt to the flour . Add the cold water and make a thick batter.( Not too watery)
Heat oil in a pan and when the smoke rises dip the desired  vegetable in the batter and deep fry turning both sides till it becomes golden brown and crispy. Serve with Mint chutney, tomato ketchup, green or red chilli sauces.
