Kid Friendly Rice Pakoda

We made this simple rice pakoda the other day and it struck me that it is extremely kid-friendly. I have often seen kids fishing out pieces of onion and coriander leaves from pakodas or just refusing to have them as it is too spicy for their palates.

This pakodas use none of these ingredients and are extremely simple. You can serve it with a spicy chutney for adults.


1 cup rice flour,
1 egg,
Milk as required,
Salt to taste,
Oil for deep frying


Mix together all the ingredients to form a thick batter. It should be a thick batter almost like a sticky dough and not have a pouring consistency.

Heat oil and drop spoonfuls of the mixture and fry on a medium heat till golden brown.

Serve this with tomato ketchup for kids and a spicy chutney for adults.
