Well, nobody would ever be able to guess that this delicacy is made from leftover khichdi! So crispy outside and so delectably chewy inside, this flavourful treat is made by reinforcing moong dal khichdi with besan and a few aroma and flavour enhancers like sesame seeds and coriander, shaping this ‘dough’ into balls and deep-frying till crisp. The besan helps the khichdi dough stay together and cook uniformly, while the remaining ingredients add to its taste. Serve these Khichdi Pakodas hot and fresh with green chutney, or when you are in a hurry, just a squirt of tomato ketchup.
