Ragi Ribbon Pakoda - Ragi Ola Pakoda - Diwali snacks - Kids friendly recipe - Diwali Savoury recipe - Tea time snack recipes

I love Ragi in any form .. I have posted Ragi murukku. Ribbon pakoda is one of most favourite savoury snack. It has many different name too (Ola pakoda, Rottu pakoda, Oatu pakoda, Ribbon tape etc..). My mum does it using different laddle meant for it. I normally use muruku / Chakli press. It is easiest way to feed the millet to anyone who is not taking it otherwise.. This turned out so crispy and addictive. I have added butter as my kids love the texture of snacks with butter. you can add hot oil in the place of butter too. Try this out for this Diwali and enjoy millet base snack
