Methi pakoda ~ Fenugreek Leaves Fritters

Yahoooo! its my 400th post today, its been a wonderful journey cooking and posting various recipes. Celebrating this occasion with a lovely snack ~ Methi Pakoda. My son who is a very picky eater too loved this dish. As it was  snowing and raining for past 2 weeks, made  these crispy and yummy pakoda's to munch on a cold winter evening. Having these pakoda's seems  like you are in heaven.
                        
Today, for week 2 and day 2 of  50th edition of Blogging Marathon, am here with the simple yet tasty Methi Pakoda. Here is the recipe.....

Fresh methi / fenugreek leaves 1/2 cup      
Sliced onion 1/2 cup.

Gram flour / besan. 1 cup
Rice flour 1/4 cup.    
Salt to taste
