Instant Rava(Suji)Pakora Video Recipe and Text Recipe Below
- 1 Finely chopped Large Onion
- 1 Finely chopped Medium size Capsicum
- 1/3 Cup Finely chopped Coriander
- 1/2 Cup Semolina
- 1/3 Cup little sour Curd
- 2 Finely chopped Green Chili
- 1/4 Tsp Eno
- 1 Tsp Ginger Garlic paste
- 1 Tbsp Chat Masala
- Salt to taste
- In a mixing bowl beat the curd until it loses all its lumps. Add suji and mix it well with the curd to combine them well. Add ¼ cup of water to make it into a batter. Let it rest for about 15 minutes.
- By this time the suji has soaked all liquid, add a little water again and stir.(Add water accordingly to make the batter of a thick consistency)
- Add all the chopped vegetables such as capsicum, onion, coriander, green chilies, chat masala, ginger garlic paste and mix all the ingredients well.
- In a deep bottom pan, add oil and let it heat. Now to check whether the oil is ready for frying, add a little bit of this batter and if it comes up immediately then it means that they are oil is ready for frying.
- Quickly add salt to taste and eno into the batter and mix well for a minute.
- Now taking a small amount of this batter in your hand or on a spoon drop them in the oil.
- Now fry the Pakode till the time they are golden brown from all side this can take anywhere from minute to minute and a half. (I avoided using red chili powder or turmeric powder to the brilliant color, this is purely option)
- Once they are golden in color from all side it’s time to remove them on a kitchen towel.
- Serve while hot with some green chutney or tomato sauce.
