For the second day of Pakodi Masti, I wanted to make something different. I happen to see something different made with Ragi flour and decided that would surely make it very different. The day I decided to make all the pakodas, it was a feast at home. I had done these along with the Potato Pakodas and then Chinnu wanted something with peanuts again. So I ended up making the regular Masala Peanuts.
However, the Masala Peanuts with the Ragi flour was surely very crispy. The only tough part is you know when to know it's cooked. Since the flour ends up being brown and the fried ones are also brown, you are in a fix. Luckily when you have an expert chef at the helms, you really have nothing to worry about.
Bowl after bowl, pakodas in different forms got fished out. And you thought something actually got left out, nay the demand was so much that we really got exhausted. Finally, we said we had enough frying and put a lid literally to the lapping of tongues and laps of oil smoking.
