ribbon sev | ribbon pakoda | ribbon murukku | ola pakoda | ottu pakoda in south india | with 19 amazing images.

ribbon sev, also known as ribbon pakoda , ola pakoda or ottu pakoda in south india in south india is a broad, ribbon-shaped sev that is super crisp because of the perfect proportioning of rice flour, besan and butter. The dough for this deep-fried ottu pakoda is flavoured aptly with chilli powder and asafoetida, which give it a mildly-spicy taste.

To get the ribbon pakoda shape, you need to use a ribbon shaped press mould, the one with vertical lines.

ribbon sev | ribbon pakoda is prepared often during festivals for diwali snacks and ganesh chaturthi.

You can surprise kids by serving the Ribbon Pakoda as long ribbons, but for the purpose of storing, you may allow it to cool, break it up gently into pieces of preferred sizes, and store in an airtight container.

I would like to share some important tips to make the perfect ribbon pakoda. 1. Gradually, add water to form a dough. Knead into a soft dough. Taste for salt and spices at this stage and add more if required. If the dough is hard, it will be difficult to press through the mould and if the dough is very sticky and watery, it will cause the ribbon sev to break while it is pressed out through the press. We have used approx. ½ cup of water. 2. Hold the sev press over pan, turn the handle of machine and press out ribbons of the sev into hot oil. As ribbons are starting to fall into the oil, slowly move machine to form a single layer of separated sev. Multiple layers will yield uncooked ribbon sev.

If you want a healthier option to deep fried ribbon murukku then try our baked ribbon sev recipe which is a perfect kids jar snack recipe.

Enjoy this delicious ola pakoda with a cup of hot coffee!

  5. Deep-fry on a medium flame till it turns very light brown in colour from the bottom. Flip and fry on the other side. Flip and fry multiple times till the sev is evenly cooked from all sides. Do not cook once the bubbling sound stops, as it will just make the aaku pakodi bitter on over frying.

  7. Repeat steps 4 to 6 and deep-fry the remaining ribbon sev in 3 more batches. If you are health conscious, then you can bake the ribbon sev instead of frying. Check out this recipe for.
