How’ve you been? I have been down, but all is good now.. It’s been long, let’s start off with our Snack ON series 🙂
simple & delish – try out this easy to make starter : Upma Pakoras or in other words Semolina Fritters. Crunchy from out, fluffy inside goes well with tomato ketchup, chutneys.. Perfect evening snack to munch on with a cup of tea! Without further ado, here comes the recipe:
In a pan, add 2 tbsp of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds. As the seeds splutter, add in curry leaves, chopped ginger and green chili.
Next, add the onions and cook it until they are slightly golden. In between, you can add the salt. Now, add the chopped carrots and french beans. Crush in a little bit of black pepper. Now, add 3/4 cup of suji (Semolina) to the mix. Next, pour in some water and cover it and cook for about 5 minutes.
Once the upma is done. Let it stay idle covered for 10 minutes before making fritters. Once it is cooled, add little bit of chili flakes and crushed peanuts. Also, add some chopped coriander. Mix everything well and make small dumplings to fry. Drop the small bites into hot oil and fry till they turn golden.
Sprinkle a little bit of salt and coriander powder on the pakoras. Serve it with some sauce or peanut chutney.And they are ready to hog!
