Note:

  1. Always fry the pakoda in hot oil. If you make the make the flame low the pakodas will drink lot of oil.
  2. Always use fine quality and smooth flour.
  3. If the flour is not of fine texture the pakoda will break when we make and also it will drink oil.
  4. If making in bulk, just mix all the ingredients except water.
  5. Make dough in batches to avoid the pakodas getting reddish in colur.
  6. Fresh ground pepper powder can be used instead of red chilli powder.
  7. Always add hot oil to the flour mixture. It gives crispiness to the snacks

  3. @prathima: i never experienced any difficulty in pressing this.If the dough is of right soft consistency, then it will be very easy to press.If this is too loose, then it will consume more oil and may break.

  4. This is the first time I tried making a snack. It came out very tasty and crispy, a bit dark in color though. Thank you for the clear instructions 🙂 Happy Diwali..!!
