A great snack that goes with evening tea or coffee.


  • Rice flour – 2 cups

  • Besan flour – 1 cup

  • Pottukadalai Powder – 1/2 cup

  • Chilli powder – 1 teaspoon

  • Asafoetida powder – 1/2 teaspoon

  • Butter or Ghee – 3 tablespoons

  • Salt – 1 and half teaspoon or as per taste

  • Oil for deep frying


  • Sieve both besan and rice flour. Put it in a broad vessel.
  • Add pottukadalai powder, chilli powder, asafetida, butter and salt and mix by hand. Then add water little by little and make a dough.
  • Take small quantity of dough and put it in the Murukku Press with Ribbon Pakoda plate and squeeze it in circular motion directly to the hot oil.
  • Fry till it becomes crispy and nice golden yellow and not too brown. Take out from oil and store it in a airtight container.


  • You can add a teaspoon of white til seeds in the flour. Instead of chilli powder, you can use pepper powder also. Instead of ghee/butter, you can add a ladle of hot oil in the flour and make the dough.
  • Instead of adding more rice flour, we can use 2 cups besan flour and one cup rice flour also. There is no hard and fast rule for ratio of flours for this pakoda.
