25 CORN FLOUR PAKODA

Corn Flour Pakoda/Pakora/Bonda- Makka chola pakoda


A very different kind of pakoda and also an healthier option to use corn flour to make pakodas. Perfect to have as a evening snack or on a rainy day. Tasted really great, was so
soft inside and crispy outside and perfect to munch. Can add in as balls and make like bondas or drop in as pakodas. Both tasted good.

Try to use yellow corn flour and not the white starchy ones. Here I have used fresh pounded/ground flour with corn grown in my native.

Yellow Corn flour( Makka chola maavu) - 1 1/2 cup
Onion - 2 small chopped fine

Green chillies - 3 chopped fine( as per spice needed)

Ginger- 1/2 inch chopped or grated fine

Curry leaves - few broken

Salt as needed

Cooking soda - a pinch( optional)

Oil for deep frying.



Take flour in a bowl. To it add onion, ginger, green chillies, curry leaves, salt and soda.
Mix well. Add little water and mix to a thick dough conistency.


Heat oil and drop in the mixture, can make as balls or drop in like pakodas. Deep fry till golden brown. Serve with your favourite sauce and enjoy.
