Ribbon pakodawithpottukadalai/ottu pakoda- Diwali special


For ribbon pakoda with pottukadalai, I have used rice flour and pottukadalai mavu.The amount of  pottukadalai mavu can be replaced with kadalaimavu.There are many options and variations of  ribbonpakoda that can be done .

we can soak rice and grind the rice instead of using rice flour.pottukadalai mavu can be sieved so that it passes through the  sieve very easily.Ottu pakoda with pottukadalai is one the south Indian snack and Diwali special that is done during festive seasons and is a perfect match for tea time.when  we use roasted gram it will melt in your mouth and is easy to make.I have done this two or three times ,it gave me good results each time I tried this.While using butter be careful .The amount of butter that can be used for 1 cup rice flour differs from  11/4 – 11/2 teaspoons.
