Ribbon Pakoda / how to make ribbon pakoda

Ribbon Pakoda is a savoury snack from Indian cuisine. It is usually prepared during festivals as Diwali and Krishna Janmasthmi. It is crispy and tasty. It makes a good snack to store in the kitchen shelves.

 

Diwali, the festival of lights is round the corner. It is that time of the year when we make a variety of sweet and savoury snacks and enjoy good times with our family.  The festive spirit brings in joy, contentment  and happiness.

Diwali, the festival of light marks the return of exile of Lord Rama from exile. It is also a festival when Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped. It symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. The first day is Dhanteras, followed by Naraka Chaturdasi,  Laxmi Puja, Bali Padya and Bhai Dhuj.

When the world is going through a dark phase, let us hope and pray for a Covid free world. The disease has taken a toll of our lives, the last six months have been scary and disrupted everyone. The festive season is not going to be the same but let us try to celebrate in a small way.

Let’s pray for a virus free world. Let us pray for the well being of one and all. May the festival of light eliminate the fear of Carona from the whole world.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cup gram flour
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon carom seeds, made into powder
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • salt
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • water
  • oil for frying

Method:

  1. Take gram flour, rice flour, turmeric powder, ajwain powder, cumin powder, salt and sieve them together.
  2. Heat half cup oil in a kadai, add it to the flour. Mix thoroughly with fingers, it should be like a crumbly texture.
  3. Now, add little water and mix it to a stiff dough, keep it covered.
  4. Take the noodle press, choose the appropriate plate, grease oil to it and fill with dough.
  5. Heat oil in a pan, Once the oil is hot, press slowly into it, keeping at a distance from oil.
  6. Deep fry it to golden colour.
  7. Remove it on a plate with tissue paper. Repeat for the rest of the dough.
  8. Store it in an air tight container.

Take a tip:

  • The flour used must not be coarse. The ribbon pakoda will break when put in oil.
  • Hot oil is essential to mix the flour.  Oil may be heated once in a pan and poured some on the flour.
  • Rice flour gives crunchiness to the snack.
  • Adjust spiciness as per your taste.
  • Noodle press is available in the market. It is used for various purposes as making sev, chakli and many others.
  • Always fry in medium flame.
  • If you are making in large quantities, mix the spices, add hot oil to it, mix and keep it aside. Take a portion of the flour, prepare the dough and make it.
