How to make poha pakora recipe

  1. Clean and wash the rice flakes in a sieve in enough water. We have used the thick variety of poha for this recipe.
  2. Transfer the poha into a deep bowl. Ensure you do not soak the poha in water, just rinse them or else they will absorb a lot of moisture which will make it difficult to make the pakoda.
  3. Add boiled and mashed potatoes. Ensure the mashed aloo is lump-free. They help in binding together all the ingredients.
  4. Then add finely chopped coriander. They not only add a colour to the pakoda but also, enhance the taste.
  5. For spice add finely chopped green chillies. You can increase or decrease the quantity as per your requirement.
  6. We are also adding chilli powder. You can skip this completely and increase the amount of green chillies.
  7. Now add sugar and lemon juice. They provide a very nice chatpata flavour to the pakoda mixture.
  8. Finally add cumin seeds and salt to taste.
  9. Mix very well using your hands and your poha aloo pakoda mixture is ready.
  10. Divide the mixture into 15 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball.
  11. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry a few pakodas at a time till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Depending upon the size of your pan, you can deep fry the pakoda in batches or all of them together.
  12. Turn them occasionally. We want them to be crunchy and golden brown in colour.
  13. Drain on an absorbent paper.
  14. Serve immediately with green chutney and tomato ketchup. They are a perfect snack to accompany a cup of tea/coffee when it is raining outside. I love eating pakoda with khajur imli ki chutney, you can also try eating with it. 
  15. Similarly, you can make Palak Pakoda, Shingdana Bhajiya and Suran Pakoda
  16. Pakoda can also be added to kadhi to make sumptuous preparations like Palak pakoda kadhi.
  17. Using kanda and batata bhajji, you can prepare popular Mumbai roadside snacks like Bhajji Pav and Kaanda Bhajji Pav
