RIBBON PAKODA / OATU PAKODA
This was made by my mom. As it was very tasty & crispy, we finished it off. I suddenly remembered of posting it in the blog. But only one piece was there to take a snap.
Rice flour - 3 cups
Gram flour - 1 cup
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp.
Butter - 100 gms.
Hing - 1/4 tsp.
Salt - as per taste
Oil - 3 cups
Mix all the ingredients without water (except oil). Take out a small portion, add little water and knead to form a medium soft dough.
Heat oil in a kadai. Make balls out of the dough, place it in a ribbon pakoda achu and press it firmly, in a circular motion, directly into the oil. Flip gently on both sides and take out when golden brown. Ensure medium heat of oil. Proceed with the remaining mixture.
NOTE: You can use the above ratio if making small quantities.
