A cold rainy weekend evening is enough to conjure up images of hot tea and pakodas which you can have with your family, friends and loved ones. And what better a dish than Poha Pakoda?

Firstly, you need to cut the onions into fine pieces. Next, in a mixing bowl, you need to mix coriander leaves, corn flour, salt, onion, red chilli, and poha – and keep it aside. Next, in a pressure cooker, cook potatoes and mash them well. Add these mashed potatoes to the poha mixture from earlier. After making the mixture homogenous, divide into small balls for frying.

Set up the Kadhai for deep-frying. Drop the balls carefully and fry the pakodas in batches. Serve hot with chutney or tomato ketchup.
