Cut the onions into thin slices. In a large bowl, mix in the onions, ginger-garlic paste, finely chopped coriander leaves, lemon juice and the tikka masala paste. You can substitute the tikka masala paste with 1 tsp chilli powder and 1 tsp cumin powder.

Add the chickpea flour and water little by little until all the onion pieces are covered. This should be a thick mixture in such a consistency that you can make balls/dumplings out of it. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok/saucepan on medium flame. You can also use a fat fryer.

When the temperature reaches around 180° C, make a dumpling out of the mixture and drop it carefully into the oil. Deep fry on medium flame until golden brown and crispy. Remove with a slotted ladle and place on absorbent paper to drain excess oil. Serve hot with raita or tomato sauce.
