Ribbon Pakoda or Ola Pakoda is an ideal snack recipe for Diwali. It is one of my favourites. This is a perfect tea time snack and for kids snacks box too..

Now to the recipe…





  • Besan Flour – 1 cup
  • Rice Flour – 1/2 cup
  • Butter – 1 tbsp
  • Chilli Powder – 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida – a generous pinch
  • Salt – as needed
  • Oil – to deep fry


  • Take besan flour and rice flour and sieve it to get rid of any lumps. Add butter, salt, chilli powder, asafoetida and mix so that it blends well. Add water little by little to form a soft dough.

  • Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Use the pattern for pressing as shaped below. Fill in with a batch of dough and press it in hot oil. Add less layers to ensure even cooking. Flip to the other side once it stops sizzling and cook until it stops sizzling again.

Drain it in a paper towel. Repeat the process for the rest of the dough.Store it in an air tight container once it cools down completely.





  1. Fry the pakoda in hot oil, else it will not be crispy and will absorb more oil too..
  2. U can use pepper powder for the spiciness.But it must be fine enough to get through the hole, else it will get stuck.
  3.  U can add white or black sesame seeds for an extra flavour.
