Ragi pakoda(finger millet fritters) is a very common snack made in the evenings in my house..my mom and grandma just make excellent and tasty pakodas within in a jiffy...

Ragi flour(finger millet flour)- 1 1/2 - 2 cups
Onion - 1 big chopped fine
Green chillies - 4 chopped fine( as spice reqd)
Ginger - 2 inch piece( chopped fine or grated)
Curry leaves - chopped or broken into small pieces
Salt as needed
Oil for frying
In a mixing bowl take ragi flour... to it add chopped onions( more onions...tastes good ), chopped green chillies, chopped or grated ginger, curry leaves and salt... mix well.. add very little water...so just to make it to stick to hold together... heat oil in a frying pan... add the ragi mixture little by little in small batches( just drop in small quantities here and there)... deep fry till crisp.

Thanks for liking. I think you can add few tbsp of rice flour when making this pakodas. Can also add some hot oil/butter to the mix before adding water.
