Ragi Pakoda / Ragi Pakora / Finger Millet fritters

Pakoda / Pakoda is a tasty Indian tea time snack usually made with gram flour, onions and spices.  To give a healthy twist, I have tried using ragi flour; it turned out very tasty and crispy.

Try this easy to prepare and quick snack along with tea; enjoy your evening!

Recipe for  Ragi Pakoda
Recipe type: Snacks
Cuisine: Indian

Ragi flour - 1 cup
Rice flour - ¼ cup
Big onion - 1(thinly sliced)
Green chillies - 2 to 3 (finely chopped)
Red chilli powder - ¼ to ½ tsp (optional)
Ginger - 1"(grated)
Curry leaves - 1 or 2 sprigs (chopped)
Salt - to taste
Oil - for deep frying


Add ragi flour, rice flour, salt, chilli powder (if adding) in a wide bowl.  Give it a mix.

Next add the sliced onion, ginger, green chilli, curry leaves.   Mix it well.

Then add 1 tbsp of hot oil over the flour mixture and  add water as required to mix to get a soft but thick dough.

Heat oil in a kadai, add the pakoda dough in a sprinkled manner little by little and deep fry it in medium flame until the the sizzling sound of the oil stops.

Once it is done, remove the pakoda from oil and drain in tissue paper.

Serve hot.


Adding red chilli powder is purely optional.

Consistency of the  dough is important for crunchiness of the pakoda.
