Ribbon Pakkoda/Ribbon Murukku

Posted by

When it comes to snacks I am reminded of Aadayar Ananda Bhavan. They have some reputation for that.Whilst its been easier to walk into one of those stores to pick snacks of our choice, we’re often left deprived snacks of similar quality at least in the city where we live. Then there’s the good old Haldirams snacks 🙂 which many a times have some North Indian touch to South Indian snacks too. Like a drizzle of that chaat masala over a pack of mixture.Luckily the Indian grocery stores do have the essentials needed for a good home made snack. I came across this pakoda here and been wanting to try it for long. I am glad I did.These were soft and crispy and the addition of pepper makes it unique in its flavors.
