The aroma of freshly brewed coffee! Isn’t it the best of all?
A simple cup of coffee has the power to awaken my senses and make my day brighter. I love having a cup of coffee in the afternoon and no one is allowed to interrupt … It’s my ‘me time’!
I never used to have tea or coffee until about 5 years back. My son, Aarav used to be a hyper active toddler. I would be busy with him all day long and by noon I would get exhausted. My mom suggested that I should have a cup of coffee in the afternoon. She was here then and got me hooked to coffee … the addiction continues to this day!
After my recent vacation, I came home to Malgudidays.coffee, and I taste tested it. Their brew is just perfectly balanced. Sweet and smooth.. this is my mood booster now, and I am loving it! Malgudi days, an award winning South Indian Filter Coffee has a fascinating story about the quest of a son to find the perfect blend of coffee for his mom! Nowadays I am trying yummy snacks every day to pair with my mdkaapi and today it is onion bajji!

Onion Bajji Recipe
Ingredients (Serves 3)
1. Onion – 2, medium
2. Besan / chickpea flour – 1/2 cup
Rice flour – 2 tbsp
Red chilly powder – 1 tsp
Asafoetida – 1 pinch
Ajwain – 1/8 tsp
Baking soda – 1 pinch (optional)
Salt – To taste
3. Water – As required
4. Oil – To deep fry
1. Combine all the ingredients numbered 2. Add water gradually to form a thick batter.
2. Peel the onion and cut into slightly thick slices.
3. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Dip the onion rings in the batter and carefully add to the hot oil. Fry until golden and crunchy, about 6 – 7 minutes. Remember to flip them in between and do not overcrowd the pan while frying. Drain on to a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Serve with coconut chutney/ ketchup and a steaming hot cup of mdkaapi.
