We had it with home prepared Onion Rings. 
How to make Onion Rings ?
Mix 1/2 cup of besan/channa powder,  1 Tablespoon of rice flour, required chilly and 1/4 teaspoon of jeera and required salt. Mix with required water and prepare pakoda batter. (Bit thick).
Remove the outer skin of onions and wash it. Cut it as circle and keep it aside.
Keep 1 cup of oil in a frying pan. Let it get hot. 
Dip each onion ring in besan mixture and put it slowly in hot oil. Fry on both sides. 
Remove it from hot oil once it is done and put it on a kitchen tissue. 
Serve with Dahi Channa and it is a good combination to have with Dahi Channa.
