Let’s talk about the ingredients for rava pakodas recipe

To make rava pakoda we need rava. I am using a fine rava. If we use regular rava pakodas might turn a bit dry. In case you don’t have fine rava you may just grind regular rava by giving it one or two pulse, that is it. Some fresh ingredients such as onion, coriander, green chillies, and ginger are used to flavour rava pakoda. Rava along with other ingredients is soaked with some water and yogurt for some time.  Rava absorbs the moisture and we get some awesome pakodas.

Other rava recipes on the blog are instant appam, stuffed appe, mini idli, rava idli etc.

Mix everything well.  Cover it and let it rest for some 15 to 20 minutes. After 15 20 minutes check the seasoning and the consistency. Once the batter has rested well, semolina will puff up. Check the seasoning and the consistency. If required as little more water. We want a dropping consistency of the batter.

Heat enough oil in a deep pan. Drop small portions of the batter in hot oil. Do not over crowd the oil. Fry pakoda on a medium flame, till they turn golden brown. Flip them occasionally.
