Usually the snacks like murukku, thattai, cheeppu cheedai, cheedai, ribbon pakoda, karasevu etc are very famous in Tamilnadu. But I always think that this ribbon pakoda remains at the top as the most favourite snack to so many people. There are different names for this snack like nada pakoda, ottu pakoda, olai pakoda, ribbon murukku, etc. There are also so many variations in preparing this pakoda. Some will add ground ginger+garlic+green chilli paste to this. Some will add just garlic paste. What I am going to post is a simple procedure to make a delicious ribbon pakoda.

ரிப்பன் பகோடா


Fine rice flour- 4 cups
Gram flour- 1 cup
Butter- 3 tbsp
Salt to taste
Asafoetida- 2 pea’s size
Chilli powder- 1 tsp
Enough oil to fry


Soak the asafoetida in a small cup of hot water over night.
In the morning, pour this water to the flours.
Add the remaining ingredients with enough water.
Knead the flours to a soft dough.
Fill enough dough in a murukku press with ‘ ribbon pakoda mould’.
Press it in to thin stripes on hot oil length wise or in to a circle.
Take the ribbaon paoda stripes out when they are cooked to golden brown on both sides.
The delicious ribbon pakoda is ready now!
