Rainy Day

Hi Friends,

It's pouring in the Bay area today and the air is cold. Have some perfect plans for the evening...hot onion fritters (pakodas) at tea time, easy and tasty snack that goes perfectly well with tea on a cool afternoon. Also  the big game is on, as 49ers  (SFO football team) are playing against NY Giants. My son and husband will be glued to TV watching the game. During the tea time we'll treat ourselves to crispy onion pakodas and enjoy it with tea....

2 medium sized onions sliced or chopped
2 green chilies chopped fine
1/4 tsp of baking soda
