Savoury Treats

Was feeling like to eat something savoury after the Carrot decided to make the Ribbon (pakoda) used to prepare this often back home...She used to fill up big big dabbas(boxes) with ribbon pakoda and we munched it during the summer vacation...'crunch- crunch', 'munch munch' ....How soon the time changed... now i have started preparing this for my kids and they are enjoying "crunch and munch" part of it...

Ingredients for making Ribbon Pakoda or Muruku:
  • Bengal Gram Flour - 3 cups
  • Rice Flour - 2 cups
  • Red Chili Powder - 1 Teaspoon
  • Salt - 1Tea spoon
  • Sesame seeds - 1 Teaspoon
  • Cumin Seeds - 1 Teaspoon
  • Butter - 2 Tablespoon (room temperature)
  • Asafotedia - 1/2 Teaspoon

Method for making Ribbon Pakoda(Murukku):

Step 1: Heat Oil in deep frying.

Step 2:Mean time , add all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well, sprinkle water and make a smooth dough...

Step 3: Once the oil is ready to be deep fried... Pass the dough through the pakoda nazhi to the oil and let it cook.. once it turn to nice golden color . Remove from Oil and strain the excess oil to a tissue.

Step 4: Let it cool. Ready to be served.

Step 5: Continue the same process till the dough finishes. Cool and store in an airtight container.

This can be done in large quantity and stored (i made six cups) (lot of ribbon pakodas...)...can be served as snacks for tea time or can be munched upon just like that.
