Ribbon Pakoda Recipe - Seeval Recipe



Ribbon pakoda is one of the highly requested recipe for this diwali in my blog. It is not only so easy to make, but it is really tasty snack as well. We call this as seeval in our place. It is crunchy, spicy and very flavourful.



I made this using a basic dough recipe, which gives your the most tasty and yummy crunchy snack. I have another version, which has a more pepper taste to it, will share it soon


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 1 to 2 min per batch
Makes : 3 to 4 cups

Ingredients:

Gram Flour / Kadalai Mavu / Besan - 1 cup
Rice Flour / Arisi Mavu - 1/2 cup
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp
Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Butter / Ghee / Vanaspati - 2 tblspn
Water as needed
Asafoetida / Hing / Kaya Podi - a pinch
Oil for deep frying

Method:

Take all the ingredients in a bowl except oil and water. Mix well so the butter incorporates with the flour.

Now add in water slowly and make a little sticky dough.

Heat oil for deep frying.

Now take your ribbon pakoda mould and put it in idiyappam press. Put the dough into the mould. Press it straight into the oil and fry till the shh sound subsides from the oil.

Drain onto some paper towel.

Cool this down completely and store it in a air tight container for more than 10 days.
