What are Rava pakodas?

Rava pakodas recipe is a deep-fried snack that is made with semolina. Prepared using ginger, coriander, green chilies and a bit of onion. Rava pakodas give us a good break from the regular fritters(pakodas) that are made using gram flour (Besan).

Let’s talk about the ingredients for rava pakodas recipe

To make rava pakoda we need rava. I am using a fine rava. In case you don’t have fine rava you may just grind regular rava, that is it. Some farm fresh ingredients such as onion, coriander, green chilies, and ginger are used to flavor rava pakoda. Rava along with other ingredients is soaked in water and yogurt for some time.

How to make Rava Pakoda Recipe

1. Add required ingredients in a mixing bowl : In a mixing bowl add 1 cup fine semolina, 1 finely chopped onion, 2 finely chopped green chilies, a handful of chopped coriander; 1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger, 1 teaspoon red chili flakes, salt to taste and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda. Add 1/4 cup yogurt and 1/4 cup water.


2. Mix and let it rest for 15-20 minutes : 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.


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


4. Bon appétit : Serve rava pakoda with green chutney

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
