Ragi Pakoda / Fritters (Ragi(Finger Millet) - Kelvaragu - Nachini)

Pakoda is the popular indian tea-time snack which can be prepared within 10mins.Ragi Pakoda is the healthier version of pakoda.Generous amount of onion is the main ingredient which gives unique and yummy taste to  it.For making Pakodas,we have to make tight mixture by adding little water. 

People love to have crispy pakodas with hot tea at evening time specially during rainy season.Yes..!its true.You can also store it in air-tight container,it stays well for a week.

I used to prepare onion pakodas once in a two weeks.A month ago,i prepared this ragi pakoda with little adjustments of onion pakoda,it tastes good.I added crushed peanuts for extra taste and flavour like we did for ragi roti.

3.Heat a kadai with required amount of oil with low-medium flame.Check the hotness by adding a bit of mixture,if its fried with bubbles its ready.Take the dough mixture in your hands and squeeze by pressing the fingers(which is the perfect way of making pakodas).Dont over crowd the kadai.Fry for 2mins till the sound/bubbles subsides.
