Onion Thogyal at it's best:)

Since my childhood days I love this dip – onion thogyal. There are lots of varieties of thogyal but this is one of my favourite. My family loved it when I improvise this with my grandma n my mother’s thogyal combo. This thogyal can be spread on bread, dip for dosai, idly and best goes with rice. If you are having with rice don’t forget to have chips or applams as accompaniment. It can also be stored for 3-4 days in refrigerator.
