Mint Pakoda

Pakodas, crunchy snacks can be just prepared with onions sometimes with vegetables also with greens..prefect for evening snacks with a cup of hot tea or coffee, nothing will replace this combination if the season is cloudy, rainy etc..I prepared pakodas out of fresh mint leaves which i bought this weekend from our farmer's market, they were really very fresh and i want make out some snacks with those aromatic leaves, immediately i thought of making them as ribbon pakoda and finally prepared them as pakodas with mint leaves and onions..Tasty, crunchy mint pakodas turns out prefectly and we enjoyed having this flavourful pakodas...

2cups Besan flour
1cup Rice flour
1/2cup Mint Leaves (chopped)
1/2cup Onions (chopped)
10nos Curry leaves
3tsbp Hot oil
1tsp Fennel seed (pounded)
5nos Garlic(crushed)
3nos Green chillies (chopped)
Salt
Oil

Take the besan flour, rice flour, chopped mint leaves, chopped onions, pounded fennel seeds, crushed garlic, chopped green chillies, salt and add the 3tbsp of hot oil, turn everything as thick paste, can also springle water them turn them as paste..

Heat the oil for deepfrying, take a handful of the thick paste and drop gently in the hot oil..fry until they turns golden brown and strain the excess of oil in a paper towel, fry in small batches..

Enjoy the flavourful mint pakodas with hot coffee or tea!!!

  21. Pudhina pakoda used to be my favorite Priya but I have not made it at all. We used to get it from Archana sweets in Chennai. It looks exactly like it.
