  • 1 packet - small elbow shaped macaroni
  • 1.5 cups - channa dal

  • 1/2 cup - onion (optional)

How to Make Macaroni Pakoda

  • First boil the macaroni in a small bowl with a little water.
  • Allow it to cook in the microwave for 3 to 4 minutes till it is al dente. Drain.
  • Now add channa dal, rice flour, salt, chilli powder, and onion to it and mix all together till it forms a coarse dough.
  • Try not to add water; you can wet your hands in the cooked macaroni water, which is a little thick because of the carb content in the macaroni.
  • Taste test the dough for salt and chilli.
  • Pour oil in a deep kadai and let it become hot, and when it is very hot, reduce the heat of the stove, and start putting small balls of dough.
  • You can put 5 to 6 balls and start frying.
  • When it turns colour and becomes light brown, you can take it out and place it on a paper towel, so that the excess oil is absorbed.
  • The same way finish the remaining dough and serve it with tomato ketchup or mint or coriander chutney.
