Mix the rice powder, 1 egg beat, salt, ginger and onion paste. A thick mixture will form. Use a big spoon to pick up portions of the mixture.
Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Pour the mixture from the big spoon on to the deep oil to make medium sized round lumps. The lumps ( pitha) will swell up in the deep oil.
Fry until the lump becomes golden yellow brown.
Repeat to make 7-8 pithas.
Place the fried pithas on a paper or paper towel so that the excess oil is soaked up.
