Baked Cashew Pakodas

Have you ever tried baking pakodas? these guilt free pakodas are seriously super crispy and definitely addictive.I have already tried baking my all time favourite onion pakodas whenever i crave for them. But for my last day of blogging marathon, i wanted to make something special and a super nutty pakodas.Cashews i just love them, since i became a health nut am avoiding  cashews in my gravies eventhough i came back from India with 4kgs of cashews. These baked pakodas turned out simply awesome and fantastic. A prefect evening snack to enjoy with a cup of hot masala tea, i just used few drops of oil for baking apart from it,these pakodas are completely oil-less. Do check the other marathoner's running this blogging marathon here.



1cup Besan flour
1/4cup Rice flour
1/2cup Cashew nuts (chopped)
1/2cup Onions (chopped)
Few Curry leaves
1/4tsp Baking soda
1tsp Fennel seed (crushed)
3nos Green chillies (chopped)
Salt
Oil

Take the besan flour, rice flour,curryleaves, chopped cashew nuts, chopped onions, crushed fennel seeds,chopped green chillies,baking soda,salt and springle enough water to make a thick paste..

Preheat the oven to 350F,line a greased baking sheet over a baking tray, take medium sized balls from the paste and drop over the lined baking sheet.

Bake for 20-25minutes (by turning the pakodas twice in between) until the crust turns golden brown.

Enjoy these guilt free pakodas with hot coffee or tea.
