  5. Now put the chopped onions and fry till onions become golden brown.
  6. Add the Chilli powder, Dhania powder, Turmeric powder, Salt and stir along with the onions.

  8. Now we shall make spicy fried onion roast.
  9. Heat a non stick tawa or iron tawa in a medium flame. Add one or two drops of oil and rub with half-cut onion. This process avoids onion roast from sticking to the tawa.
  10. Pour one ladle of batter in the center of tawa and spread it in a circular motion as shown in the image.
  11. When the batter is spread to a thin layer it is called as roast. Note: Whereas, when the batter is spread as a thick layer it called dosa.
  12. Drizzle one tea spoon of oil around and across the Roast.
  13. Now put the spicy fried onions on the roast and spread them.
  14. Once the roast is cooked to some extent, flip it over to the other side.
  15. Cook the other side also well and turn the roast back after a minute.
  16. Take the spicy fried onion roast, out of the flame and place it in a separate plate.
  17. Serve hot with any varieties of chutney, Sambar or Idly Milagai podi/Idly spicy chutney powder.
