Mixed Flour Ribbon Pakoda

>>  Saturday, June 25, 2011

Ribbon Pakodas have always been my favorite snack next to Murukkus. Amma always makes ribbon pakodas for deepavali without fail, so it has come to mean as a festival snack for me. It's also one of those snacks that Adayar Ananda Bhavan makes well. Gone are those days when we slogged over hot oil making tins and tins of these snacks. I pratically find it hard to spend so much time to make for the festivals. Especially when we have to send it across to neighbors, we have to make sure there is enough. Since these shops make them well and fresh, we resorted to buying them for the festivals.

Coming to the recipe for today, we had made Urad dal at home for another snack and had excess of it at hand. So Amma thought of making a Mixed flour Ribbon Pakodas and it came out well. If you are looking for change, then this one will surely interest you.

Ingredients Needed:

Raw Rice flour - 2 cups
Besan / Gram Flour / Roasted Channa Dal - 1/2 cup
Urad dal flour - 1/4 cup
Fried Gram Flour / Pappula podi - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Butter - 1 tbsp

Method to prepare:

In a wide bowl, take the rice flour, besan, Urad dal flour, fried gram flour (Pottukadai, Pappulu), salt and butter.

Mix all the dry flour well and slowly add the water just enough to get a pliable dough. It should not be very loose though.

Heat a kadai with hot. Once its hot, simmer to medium flame.

Divide the dough into balls, fill the muruku achu and press over the hot oil. Since the dough is smooth, it will easily slide into the oil. Cook over medium flame to ensure equal cooking on all sides.

When its cooked and it turns golden colour, remove and allow to cool a bit.

Store in a container.

This is delicious snack if you want to take for picnic.
