Pattanam Pakoda recipe - Roasted gram dal fritters recipe - Pakoda recipes - Easy snack recipes - Kids friendly recipes

I have tasted this pakoda in many functions and I have never made it myself. 10 years ago when I visited one of my husband's friend's house for lunch, she made this pakoda. I had tasted it after quite sometime. I have taken the recipe from her. She made it with Roasted gram dal powder and it tasted better (before I remember besan flour taste). I have prepared cut curry leaves, coriander leaves but I forgot about it (in fact I noticed it only when I was editing the video). I prefer to add small onion but you can add normal onion too. 


Roasted gram dal powder - 1 cup
Rice flour - 2 tablespoon
Besan Flour - 2 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Ginger paste - 1/4 teaspoon
Garlic paste - 1 teaspoon (Optional)
Small onion - 10 (chopped Roughly)
