1 small onion, finely diced
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
A pinch of baking soda
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!!
