Ribbon Pakoda

This is another savory treat I make very often. Even though many of us know the recipe, this is my version.

Ingredients:-
  1. Rice Flour - 4 cups
  2. Besan Flour - 1 cup
  3. Unsalted Butter - 2 tsp
  4. Red chillies powder - 1 1/2 tsp (according to taste)
  5. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  6. salt to taste
  7. Oil - to fry

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. In the mean time, mix all the above said ingredients, sprinkle water accordingly and make a smooth dough. Once the oil is ready to fry, make small balls out of the dough and pass it in the oil through pakoda naazhi. Fry it till becomes golden brown, strain the excess oil in a paper towel, let it cool and store it in a air tight container.

This post goes to Priti's Diwali Celebrations.

I love ribbon pagodas though I have never prepared them. This time on my trip to India, I have bought a murruku acchu from my grandmother. I am going to try your ribbon pagoda. Thanks for the recipe :)
