 Children love crispy items and this recipe is good as an evening snack with the goodness of ragi and sattu.  Ragi is very good for growing children. It is a perfect balance of protein, fibre and carbs. 



  1. Mix all the flours, salt asafoetida powder, sesame seeds well.
  2. Heat a pan with oil for deep frying.
  3. Add 1 tbsp of hot oil to the flour mixture. Mix well. Now add water slowly and make a soft non sticky dough.
  4. Use the murukku/chakli press and choose the right plate for ribbon. Fill the press with the dough and squeeze in the oil. Cook on medium heat.
  5. Once the bottom portion becomes crisp, flip and cook the other side.
  6. Remove and drain the pakoda on a kitchen tissue.
  7. Once cooled down, store in an air tight container.

    1. Hi Kalpana,
      Thanks so much for trying. Whatever may be the shape, we are going to crush and eat, right? So it hardly matters! I’m happy you are trying these delicacies. With practice you’ll get perfect shape.
      Please share a picture through messenger. Would like to see your ribbon.

    1. Hi Lakshmi,
      You can use roasted gram dal powder also known as pottukadalai maavu or chutney dal powder. That will give you the same result.
