What are Kuttu ke Pakode?
Kuttu Ke Pakode have crisp and crunchy exterior and soft interior of well seasoned potatoes. The best part is being non deep fried they have lesser calories and are light on the stomach.Kuttu, Rajgira, Samak ke Chawal, Sabudana… are not just ingredients of dishes, they bring positivity and happiness. During fasts specially Navaratri we eat these flours and Navaratri means joy and festivity.For instance when I serve kuttu ke pakode , the house has a beautiful aroma of hawan, kids have moli (sacred thread) on their wrists, tika on their foreheads, the markets are full of pooja samagri, roads are crowded, everyone is out buying something etc. And there are so many online sales. I can talk non-stop about Navratri and the atmosphere then. But the heading is Kuttu ke Pakode.
Let’s talk about the ingredients for Kuttu ke Pakode
Since we are making non fried pakoda, we will be using boiled potatoes otherwise the potatoes will take forever to get cooked. To make the pakode absolutely flavourful, I have marinated boiled potaotes with some spices etc. For making the non fried version we need to take care of the consistency of batter. It should be thick enough to coat well and remain coated till cooked.
