MAIDA PAKODAS

Maida pakoda is a simple quick snack that can be had along with a cup of tea. The flavour of onions, coriander leaves with a mix of spices makes pakodas delicious. Its been long since I've prepared this snack and was craving for this. So heres goes my recipe-

INGREDIENTS.

1 cup Maida.

3/4 cup yoghurt.

1 tbs Rice flour.

1 tbs Chilli powder.

1 tsp Soda powder.

1/2 cup Chopped Onions.

1/4 cup Coriander leaves.

Few Curry leaves.

Oil for deep frying.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

In a bowl mix maida,yoghurt,soda,chilli powder,rice flour and salt. Add more or less yoghurt as needed to become a thick paste.

Add the rest of the ingredients ie chopped onions,curry leaves and coriander leaves. Adjust salt as per needed. Mix well.
Heat oil in a kadai. Form a small shaped balls of the made paste and drop them carefully into the oil and fry till golden brown.

Place them on tissue paper so the excess oil gets absorbed while repeat the same process with the rest of the batter.

Serve hot as it is or with ketchup ,green chutney anything u like.


Sending this off to SIRI'S FROZEN YOGHURT EVENT.



Enjoy..

They look lovely. They are very simmilar to the Mangalore bajjis I just made them last week. They are so tasty right.

Bharathy said...

Made them just now, following yours...One of the yummiest and easiest snacks I have ever tried..will be making this as kids' 'back school snack' here after :)..

...and how come the batter in yours is so whitish in colour?..mine was red coz of chilly powder ...or have you added green chillies??
Anyway thanx a ton for this lovely recipe...My MIL makes this but what I made following yours is the best!! :D
Hugs Sumakutty!..
