Masala Peanuts with Ragi Flour | Verusenaga Ragi Pakoda Recipe

>>  Sunday, November 18, 2012

For the second day of Pakodi Masti, I wanted to make something different. I happen to see something different made with Ragi flour and decided that would surely make it very different. The day I decided to make all the pakodas, it was a feast at home. I had done these along with the Potato Pakodas and then Chinnu wanted something with peanuts again. So I ended up making the regular Masala Peanuts.

However the Masala Peanuts with the Ragi flour was surely very crispy. Only tough part is you knowing when to know it's cooked. Since the flour ends up being brown and the fried ones are also brown, you are in a fix. Luckily when you have an expert chef at the helms, you really have nothing to worry. 

Bowl after bowl, pakodas in different forms got fished out. And you thought something actually got left out, nay the demand was so much that we really got exhausted. Finally we said we had enough frying and put a lid literally to the lapping of tongues and laps of oil smoking.

Peanuts with Finger Millet Flour Pakora

Ingredients Needed
Inspired by Harichandana

Groundnuts / Peanuts: 1 cup
Finger Millet Flour / Ragi Flour: 1/2 cup
Garlic - 4 cloves
Red Chilli Powder : 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves few
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

How to make the Pakodas

Wash the groundnuts and drain. In a bowl, take the peanuts, ragi flour, salt, red chilli powder, crushed garlic and curry leaves. 

Sprinkle water over the peanuts to get a thick coating over the nuts.

Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Drop the flour coated peanuts into the hot oil  and fry until dark color on both sides. 

Drain and remove them on a kitchen towel and let them cool completely. Once they are cool, store in a airtight container.
