  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour (Senagapindi, Besan)
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder (can be replaced with green chilies)
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • A pinch of baking soda
  • Salt
  • Oil to deep fry

How to Make Brown rice pakoda

  • Wash and soak brown rice overnight.
  • Grind soaked brown rice into a smooth paste (don`t add too much water). It is OK if it is little coarse.
  • Add chickpea flour + red chili powder + onion + baking soda + cumin seeds to the brown rice batter and mix well to form a thick paste. Make sure not to add too much water to the batter. It should be thick.
  • Pour oil in the pan and heat. When the oil becomes hot, take small batches of the pakoda batter and drop carefully into the hot oil.
  • Deep fry until the pakodas turn golden brown in color and remove from oil. Place on a plate lined with paper towel to remove excess oil. Repeat the same process with remaining batter. Enjoy these great tasting and healthy pakodas with tea/coffee and desired dip. Yummy!!
