Methi Pakodas


Methi Pakodas are one of my favorite fried dishes. They are very easy to make and can be made in no time at all. You can make them if your kids refuse to eat methi sabji due to its somewhat bitter taste. If frying doesn't suit you just make the pakoda batter thicker and cook then in a paniyaram mould. For more information regarding this ( see here )

A cup of hot steaming tea and a plateful of these crispy crunchy pakodas would make my day anytime. So
today I made this yummy treat  for  Potluck Party by Jagruti .

Ingredients :

1 bunch .........................Fenugreek ( methi vegetable )
2 ...................................onions ( very finely chopped )
1 n 1/2  cup ...........................chick pea flour ( besan )
2 tbsp..........................rice flour
2 tsp.............................ginger chilly paste
1 tsp............................dhana jeera ( roughly crushed )
1 tbsp........................lemon juice
1/2 tsp......................sugar
salt
oil for deep frying





Method :

Clean the bunch of methi and chop the leaves.

Mix all the ingredients except oil for frying and knead a dough with water.

Dough will be sticky due to besan .

Now drop small balls of the dough in oil and deep fry .

You can also bake the balls if you want to avoid frying.
