Rava Pakoda

This is one of my Mom's quick and easy recipe, especially for guests who turn up suddenly without notice! Not to mention its very delicious though very simple, with handy ingredients.

I used white semolina for making this, just like my mom. Preparation time is a little less than 20 mins.


White rava (semolina) - 2 cups
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Ginger, Garlic - 1/2 tsp each
Chopped Onion - 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 6
Salt - to taste
Turmeric powder - Just a pinch
Oil - To Deep Fry
Water - As required

Method to Prepare:

Roast the Rava and keep aside.

Take a skillet and pour 1 tbsp of oil and add the mustard seeds and Cumin seeds. Once they splutter, add the onion and green chilles and saute them for a minute and add the ginger and garlic paste.Add a pinch of turmeric and a little salt.Adding salt at this point helps to remove the moisture from the onions very quickly. Saute the mixture till the raw smell of the onion goes off.

Put off the stove and add the mixture to the rava. Add salt to taste and add water and form a dough, consistent enough to form small, small lumps. Form small lumps of this and start deep frying. If the pakoda is little hard, add some more water to the dough.
