Medu Pakoda (Mettati Pakodilu)

Medu pakoda my mother recipe. I do not know if this is the original recipe or not, but this recipe is a special recipe from my mother. In my childhood Amma used to make this for her sudden guests with in few minutes. Amma used to say that dosa batter makes pakoda soft so that she call them as medu pakoda or mettati pakoda. Aavakaya is the best combination for this. But I like to have them with out any chutney. Rasam rice and this pakoda is a perfect combination. You can add finely chopped fresh coriander leaves or finely chopped spinach to this pakoda.

This is my first recipe under Evening Snack theme for this month second week BM. Let's check the recipe....

Bengal gram flour( besan, kadala mavu, sengapindi) --- 1 cup
