Can you ever say no to a plateful of pakodas with a cup of chai? Of course, you can't. This snack is something we all have grown up gorging on in the evenings when hunger strikes again for something crispy and yummy. Rain or no rain, pakoda is always welcomed by our taste buds. We have tried and loved so many varieties of pakodas but there's always some charm in treating ourselves to a completely new taste. This rava besan pakoda offers that and more with its distinct flavours and texture.
Rava (sooji) is often added to other fried foods to lend its crunch. Imagine, how crispy a pakoda would be if it's made of sooji itself? Add to it the crunch of onions, mushiness of potatoes and fiery spark from lots of masalas - there's no way this pakoda can be disliked by anyone. Also, the familiar nutty taste from besan keeps all those pakoda-sessions memories alive. Enough said - before we start to make this pakoda, let us share the recipe with you.
