Killu pakoda

              Killu pakoda can be called as pinched onion fritters.  It includes besan flour as the main ingredient. This is one of the common snacks that amma makes either on rainy days or on sunday evenings.  She makes kesari or sooji halwa along with this. Starting from my granpa everyone likes this and each one of us wants to have a major share and there will be a good competition to have the maximum.
