Ribbon pakoda is one of my favorite snacks. Errr I think I should say I love all the savory crunchy snacks. Anyways here is my third tea time snack and a Diwali savory recipe – Ribbon pakoda. It is savory item deep fried in oil using the murukku presser with thin ribbon mold or achu. This is the presser that I used. As I posted a baked savory on tuesday, I going with the fried one now. Its the festive season and I can’t keep skipping the task of frying.
Why it is called ribbon pakoda? In the presser we use the thin small ribbon shaped mold to press this and hence this name. I am not sure if they call this as surul pakoda too. You can press this like murukku and then break them into small pieces. I love this along with rice also. You can buy the presser from amazon too but all the Indian groceries in Bay carry these.
There is one more savory recipe coming tomorrow, so stay tuned :-)
