Few things to keep in mind

  • Maggi: You can use leftover maggi (if you ever have that at home..;)) for this recipe. In that case, instead of adding more tastemaker to the pakoda batter, you can adjust the taste by increasing the quantity of the other dry masalas.
  • Consistency of batter: Don’t make a thin batter for the pakodas. You should have a thick batter to ensure the pakodas don’t harden up from the inside.


Ingredient List

  • Maggi Noodles – 1 pack, with tastemaker
  • Gram Flour / Besan – 1/2 cup
  • Onion – 1 medium size, sliced thin
  • Green Chilli – 1-2, chopped fine
  • Ginger Garlic Paste – 3/4 tsp
  • Asafoetida – 1/4 tsp
  • Chilli Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Chaat Masala – 1/2 tsp (optional)
  • Salt – as per taste
  • Coriander Leaves – a few, chopped
  • Oil – 2 tsp 
  • Water – as needed
  • Oil – for frying

Step by Step Process

  1. Boil the maggi in 1 cup of water without the tastemaker.
  2. For this, first bring the water to a boil and then add the maggi to it. Cover and let it come to a boil. Turn off the heat and let it sit covered for 2 min.
  3. Drain off the water and add some room temperature water to stop the cooking further. Keep the cooked maggi aside.
  4. In a bowl, add all the ingredients (except the water) along with the cooked maggi and maggi tastemaker and mix well.
  5. Next, add water slowly to bring it all together and make a thick batter. 
  6. Heat oil in a pan and once the oil is hot, add small spoonfuls of the batter. Let it cook evenly to a golden brown color on all sides.
  7. Remove the pakodas from heat onto a kitchen tissue to drain off excess oil.
  8. Serve hot with some ketchup!
