Ragi pakoda recipe |kongunad ragi onion pakoda recipe with step by step photos and video recipe. simple, easy and quick snacks recipe with finger millet flour also known as ragi/kezhvaragu. 

to be frank am not that attracted towards millet for the reason and assumption that it is not as tasty as our usual staples. but for some reason, i always think of finding a better solution to make these millets very much tastier.

I once had this ragi pakoda from a friends place in bangalore. my friends mom as soon as she saw our heads, went to kitchen and made this super yummy ragi pakoda/ragi vada with lot of onions, coriander, ginger, gram flour and rice flour. 

she made it so quick and it was not all like the usual ragi taste and i loved it. i always buy ragi at home for my kid to make ragi koozh. but now that he has lost interest in ragi. i thought of including it in some or the other way as its must especially for children as its rich in fiber and calcium (for strong bones)

5. i like making tiny balls out of it. but usually it is pinch dropped. take a big portion of dough and pinch little at a time in the medium hot oil. oil has to be medium hot. if it is too hot the pakodas turn brown quickly but inside will be uncooked. if it is not hot then it will cook for longer and will not be crispy. fry on all sides until brown and crisp. strain it to a paper towel.
