Ribbon pakoda

      I have hardly tried out any Tamilnadu savouries yet, thenkuzhal being the first one which I posted very recently. I have then tried this ribbon pakoda for janmashtami with good results and I realized that everyone loves them. So I do plan to try out other simple ones too for a start once in a while.
      This recipe was given my grandmother. When I browsed the net, I saw the proportion of rice and besan has varied in different blogs. So you can try adjusting it accordingly. This proportion gave nice, soft and at the same time crispy pakodas.
ribbon pakoda recipe

 Recipe source- My grandmother

Besan flour/kadalaimaavu- 2 cups
Rice flour- 1 cup
Red chilly powder- 2tsp
Butter-1tbsp(melted) or use hot oil
Oil for deep frying
   Combine all the ingredients. Add the melted butter. Sprinkle some water and make a soft,non sticky dough.
   Pinch a small portion of the dough. Place it in a murukku press with a ribbon pakoda plate( a small disc which has a elongated perforation in the center to form ribbon like shape when the dough is squeezed through it).
   Heat the oil for deep frying. When the oil is hot, squeeze out the dough in hot oil. Fry till it is deep golden brown in colour. Remove from oil on a tissue or a vessel with small hole to drain out the excess oil. Store in a air tight container.

i love that nice golden yellow color to your ribbon pakoda. I tend to press them directly in oil and hence they sometimes go off shape. Pressing on the plate and transferring seems a sound idea to retain shape.

@Lata Raja- I also pressed them directly into the hot oil..Just for the photo, I have shown that being pressed on the plate as I had no one around to click it for me!!
