39 MACARONI PAKODA

Macaroni pakoda/pakora


Macaroni - 3/4 cup
Gram flour/Besan/kadala maavu/kadale hittu - 1 1/2 cups
Rice flour - 2 tbsp
Salt as needed
Onion - 1 small chopped fine
Green chillies - 3 chopped fine
Curry leaves - few chopped fine
Oil for deep frying


Try using small elbow kind of macaroni for this pakoda.

Cook macaroni as per the instructions on the pack with salt until they are soft and tender. Drain and run in water to cool to avoid sticking.

In a mixing bowl add besan/gram flour, rice flour, salt, chopped onions, chopped green chillies and curry leaves. Mix well and add the cooked macaroni. Add water and make a paste just enough like a dropping consistency. Heat oil for deep frying and drop in hot oil in small sizes and deep fry till they are cooked . Remove and serve with tomato sauce/ketchup.


As a variation can add in some grated/chopped ginger and or ajwain seeds/oma.
Kids will sure to love them .

I have mainly tried with small elbow variety and for a change tried the small shells, but felt they were kind of hard. So I recommend using elbow variety.
