Ribbon Pakoda

Ribbon pakoda is a mildly spiced evening snack. This ribbon shaped snack is made of gram flour, which is very healthier compared to other commercially available snacks.

Ingredients - Serves 4
  • Bengal gram flour - 1 cup
  • Rice flour - 1 cup
  • Dry chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp
  • Butter - 2 tsp
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Water to mix
  • Salt to taste
  • In a big bowl mix bengal gram flour, rice flour, chilli powder, asafoetida and salt
  • Add melted butter and mix well
  • Add water little by little to get a nice dough (not to be made very hard or very soft)

  • Place ribbon pakoda mold inside the snack maker and stuff with the prepared dough 
  • Pour oil in a deep frying pan and allow it to heat
  • Squeeze the dough in a circular motion over the hot oil, let it cook until the bubbles stop
  • Turn over and allow it to cook until it is golden yellow (not dark brown)
  • Cool it and store in an air tight container
