The onset of Winter in UAE has reinforced the cool, windy, picnic friendly weather. Followed by such cozy weather it’s the drizzling rain which often accompany making the life more pleasant. Right now it’s the same pleasant life situation here. It’s been raining here in small bursts of drizzles since two days and the remote mountains are visible more clear than ever. So today weather influenced food, a deep fried snack is showing up here. Guess what? Stuffed onion ring. The crunchy onion with spicy, flavorful stuffing wrapped in the coating of gram flour tastes way more delicious along with tea in a windy weather.
The concept of stuffed onion rings is quite new to me. It was the simple onion pakoda for which my cravings roar during cloudy weather. But yesterday I thought to be bit fancy in my snack cravings. So a recipe which I read long back in a news paper came to my rescue. The stuffing is truly best part of this snack which you can tweak in accordance with your own taste buds. Like add in little this and that. The spices like garam masala, coriander powder and some mint leaves would be best taste enhancers.
When such a spicy plus flavorful stuffing fits in between the onion rings, the snack gets a visually appealing texture. Be wise to choose the onion ring pairs such that smaller one pass through big. You need to stuff between two concentric onion rings which would be deep fried later with gram flour coating. Stuffed onion ring was quite a hit in the drizzling rainy evening and my mind is in look for another such snack for the upcoming winter days.
