Ribbon Pakoda Recipe
Ribbon pakoda is one of the recipes I tried for this diwali. This is less time consuming and no prior preparation is required for this recipe. This is a most common diwali recipe. It has got other names like nada thenkuzhal and ola pakoda. It can be prepared with store bought rice flour. It turned out very crispy and tasty. Apart from festival times, Ribbon pakoda can also be prepared for tea time snacks too.
