Ribbon Pakora Recipe

Ribbon pakora a.k.a. ribbon murukku is deeply rooted in all Indian chai and snack loving hearts. The deep fried snack is a slightly tweaked version of the classic murukku. The differences being in shape and a slightly altered ingredients list (which is optional) – the ribbon pakoda can be made using only besan (gram flour), just like the besan sev. These two changes may seem trivial, but make a world of a difference in the final result.

The ribbon pakoda is crunchier and even tastes a little different than its aforementioned contemporaries. And paired with a piping hot cup of masala chai and/or filter coffee, it makes for one delicious evening snack for the savoury food lover. Moreover, the ribbon pakoda lasts long and is a great food to store for a rainy (read, sudden munchy craving) day. Follow the simply recipe below to fry up a batch of delicious ribbon murukkus.
