Aval pakoda | poha pakoda recipe with step wise pictures and video, a deep fried snack made using rice flakes and potato as main ingredients. Potato acts as a binder in this recipe. Though i don’t make deep fried snacks very often, sometimes when i  have  guests at my place during teatime i would love to serve tea with any deep fried snack . This pakoda i have tried many times and this time i made for my friends and they all loved this. I have used medium thin aval for this recipe, you can use thick or thin aval too.

Hi Jeyshri,
I love checking your website for different recipes. I tried your mutter masala which was a hit among my friends and my hubby loved it too. My hubby prefers mostly south indian dishes. But he loved this mutter masala and went on eating rotis just for it 🙂 Thanks for this great recipe!
I had a question regarding this aval poha. Can I make the dough a day in advance and fry it the next day just before the guests arrive? If so, how to store the dough?

Reply
jeyashri suresh January 17, 2014 - 7:49 am

Since we are adding onions it will ooze out water and make the dough watery , if it is made in advance. You can boil the potatoes the previous day night and keep in the refrigerator.

Thanks for the recipe! it came out very tasty. Some of them split open in the oil tough.. do you have any tips for that?
Thanks in advance!

jeyashri suresh July 17, 2014 - 2:19 pm

The mixture must not have not have bind properly. If the potatoes are evenly mixed this will not happen. while making balls, make it tightly.

Hi jeyashri,
I am new to your blog and let me tell you, you are doing an amazing job.The recipes turn out perfectly when followed as per pictorial description. As for these pakoras, they are melt- in- the- mouth yummy! One doubt – can I use this mixture for koftas and also?

Reply
jeyashri suresh March 20, 2017 - 2:53 am

Thank you so much shilpa. I think you can try adding it as koftas. Add just before serving. Add some more spices like garam masala, dhaniya powder and jeera powder to the poha mixture before frying.
