Pasta Pakora | Pakoda with Pasta | Step by Step Recipe

>>  Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Well after couple of days of unending thoughts of what next to make, will twist really be a twist and unrelenting steam of thoughts going forth and back, even the meetings at work were not left without these thoughts cropping up at times. Imagine sitting in middle of a serious technology meeting and suddenly the thought that comes to mind is not how to change the logic, rather how to twist a recipe!

Anyway this pasta pakoda came to mind sometime during my ride back home, with so much traffic and being helpless to do anything but let the thoughts take over and I find that I can actually come up with brilliant ideas. Back home when I was excited to share my brainwave with Amma, guess what happens! She says "yes I recently saw this in the Tele!" Imagine my shock, I am not the first to get such brilliant ideas???
Then I thought I might anyway go ahead with the idea and set about making it. I was actually thinking about Penne Pakoda, just for the rhyme those two words have, but with elbow macaronis overflowing in the pantry, I had to do with this, so the name Pasta Pakoda.

Though Konda was reluctant to taste first, after the first go, she wanted more. I had to confess that it was only an experiment and will make more since she likes it.

Step by Step Picture Recipe

Pasta Pakora

Ingredients Needed:

Pasta - 1 cup
Onions - 1/2 cup
Gram flour / Besan - 1/2 cup
Rice Flour - 2 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/4 tsp
Red Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Roasted Cumin Powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves handful
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

How to make the Pasta Pakoda

Boil the pasta in enough water until done, drain in a colander. Keep it aside.

In a bowl, take the onion  juliennes, ginger garlic paste, salt, chili powder, coriander leaves, cumin powder and mix well. Then add the cooked pastas and mix well. 

then sieve in the gram flour and rice flour over the pasta mix. combine everything well so that the pasta gets mixed with the besan.

Heat a kadai with oil. Once hot, drop in the pasta mixture and cook on both sides until the pakodas turn golden in colour.

Drain in a kitchen towel and serve with ketchup.

Never even imagined pastas could be turned into pakodas!Great idea...

Anonymous April 19, 2016 at 7:51 PM  

Just had this brilliant idea of turning pasta into pakoda and thought I am so good... - googled PASTA PAKODA and found this recipe from you... :-) and the nest thing was to read the part where you say that you thought it was your original idea but learned it was already done before. Interestingly I thought the same only to land on to this page.

Srivalli April 20, 2016 at 10:15 AM  

Anon Thanks for dropping by..nice knowing you went through the same line of thoughts...It is indeed wonderful to know that there are other Brilliant people out there you enjoyed your pasta pakoda too..
