Ribbon Pakoda

Cooks in: 40 Minutes Serves: 4 People

This crunchy pakoda is usually made using rice flour and besan.  I have used jowar flour and it was as crunchy as rice pakoda. This goes well with tea or as a side dish for rice varieties.



  1. In a wide bowl, add besan and jowar flour.
  2. Add salt, chilli powder, asafoetida powder and butter. Mix well.
  3. Add water little by little and make a soft dough.
  4. Heat oil in a pan.
  5. Using the ribbon plate of the press, make a round with the batter in the oil.
  6. When one side is done, flip carefully and cook the other side.
  7. Remove when the sizzling sound subsides and place it on a tissue paper to remove the excess oil.
  8. Cool completely and store in an air tight container.
