Chop the onions finely. Sift the rice flour, gram flour and maida together. Mix all the ingredients together. Add water and make a thick batter without any lumps. You can add a little more chilli powder if you want it extra spicy!

Deep fry them in batches of 5 or 6 till they turn golden brown in about 2 to 3 minutes. Take care the flame is not too high, otherwise the inside might not get cooked properly.
