Ribbon Pakoda Recipe with step by step pictures

I have written here many times that Amma has a brown covered Diary where she has written down recipes from various magazines. I love browsing through those pages and many a times I ask her if a certain recipe will work out or what changes can be made.

This Ribbon Pakoda Recipe is something that I have been eyeing for a while and this one was written in that diary for reference ages ago when amma used to make it regularly.


Store bought snacks were not preferred and it was amma who used to stock up various savories and sweets that went into the snack box for school.

Ribbon pakoda is also known by the names – Ola Pakoda, Nada Thenkuzhal, Nada Murukku.

This Ribbon Pakoda Recipe is for Blogging Marathon #95, Week 3, Day 1 under the theme Deep fried love.
