1) If you want to avoid Besan/Gram flour, you can also add Rice flour.

2) Fennel seeds gives unique flavour to these fritters, you can avoid it if you don't love them.

3) If you have already added onion to the batter, you can skip adding them now. 

4) You can also replace onions with Cabbage to make a NO onion NO garlic dish.
