Ingredients for Ribbon Pakoda Recipe With Gram Flour

Preparation Time : 10 mins   Cooking Time : 30 Mins    Serves : 3 

  • 1 cup of kadalaimaavu (gram flour)
  • 1/4 Cup of maida
  • 1/4 Cup of Raw Rice Flour (store bought or homemade)
  • 1/4 Tsp of Baking Soda
  • Pinch of Asafoetida
  • 1/4 Tsp of Cumin
  • 1/4 Tsp of Ajwain
  • 1 Tsp of Green Chilly Paste or 3/4 Tsp of Red Chilly Powder
  • 1 Tbsp of Butter or Hot Oil
  • Salt  and Water as required

Method for Ribbon Pakoda Recipe With Gram Flour

  • In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well by adding little by little water to form a smooth dough. Divide the dough into 3 parts.
  • Grease the oil on the inner wall of the murukku press. Place the ribbon pakoda disc at the bottom and now add the dough to the murukku press to make ribbon pakoda.


  • Heat oil in a pan, when it is smoking hot, drop a small piece of dough, if it raises up immediately, then your oil is ready. Turn the heat to medium, keep a ball of dough on the murukku press, press it directly to the hot oil. Now dough falls into the hot oil.
  • Fry the ribbon pakoda until it turns golden brown colour or until sizzling sound stops.
  • Remove from oil, drain it in a paper towel.


  • Delicious, crispy ribbon pakoda is ready to serve for evening snack or for diwali.


  • Always keep your dough wet, by wrapping the bowl with wet cloth so it doesn’t get dry. If your dough got dried just sprinkle some water and knead it before you make ribbon pakoda.
  • I used green chilly paste,you can also use red chilly powder for spicy taste.
  • Instead of butter, add hot oil to the flour.
  • Adding Cumin, ajwain and asafoetida are for easy digestion.
  • Store it in an airtight container.
