Basically I love home made snacks instead of buying them. Now it is rainy and cold outside. My Indian taste buds started craving for a spicy and crispy snack . The end result is Ribbon Pakoda or Oolai pakoda (in Tamil).
This is the first time i have ever prepared it and it became a wonderful snack for this weekend. I have given the original recipe here but I replaced butter by adding 2 tsp of ordinary cooking oil.
Try this recipe and tell me how it came out.
Rice flour - 2 cups
Besan flour - 1 cup
asafoetida - 1 pinch
Red chilli powder - 2 tsp
salt - 2 tsp
oil - 500 ml
curry masala powder - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 1 tbsp
Mix salt with one cup water.
Add chilli powder, asafoetida, curry/ garam masal powder , rice flour and besan flour thoroughly.
Then add salt water little by little and make a dough like chapathi dough.
Now coat it with softened butter and mix well.
Heat a pan with oil.
Fit the ribbon pakoda maker in the "Murukku maker" and squeeze long strands of dough into hot oil.
After all the bubbles get settled, turn it using a spatula .Take out the golden brown ribbon / oolaai pakoda and drain oil using a tissue paper.
Generally it will not consume oil.
Makes nearly 8 big rounds of ribbon pakoda.
Serve hot as evening snack along with tea / coffee.
After cooling they can be stored in air tight containers and will last for 2 weeks.(But will vanish soon as no one control themselves on seeing them ..ha .ha)
