Hey guys! The rainy season is almost upon us and with the season comes the craving to have hot pakoda’s. I have posted many pakoda recipes before. This recipe is a famous Andhra street food usually made using idli batter. I have used my rava urad dal batter the link for the batter is posted below. These pakoda’s are so simple to make and extremely tasty. Serve it hot with filter coffee or tea during pouring rain’s outside. The batter used in this recipe should have very less water so while grinding the batter use very little water (I have used only 2-3 tbsp for grinding). If using ready idli batter do not add water to it. So lets get cooking….


Idli batter – 2 cups

Onions (finely chopped) – 2 medium

Capsicum (finely chopped) – 1 large

Cabbage (finely chopped) – 1 cup

Green chilly (finely chopped) – 2-3 pieces

Ginger-Garlic paste – 2 tsp

Salt as per taste

Cooking soda/Soda bi Carb – 1/4 tsp

Oil for frying


In a bowl mix together all the ingredients. In a wok take oil for deep frying. Let the oil become hot. Drop a little of the batter in the oil if it comes up instantly the oil is ready. Now drop small dollops of the batter in the batter using a spoon or hand and let it fry till golden brown on high flame. Do not turn the pakoda in the oil till it comes up on its own. Serve hot.

  1. Being a Hyderabadi..it’s one of my favourite thing …i have tried it so many times but bahar wala taste nahi aaya…that bandi wala taste ..always pulls me towards it.


  2. Shail I must say its quick and tempting from the pic.


  3. This looks like the perfect snack for Netflix and chilling on a rainy day!


  4. I think you forget to put the batter link. Usually I tried with curd rava batter. This one is new for me. Looks tasty. Must have for rainy season.


    1. The link in there in the last section. Where it is written Rava Urad Dal dosa click on that. That is the link directly. In WordPress it does not show the link it shows the name.


      1. You have add link to the word.
        I would like to give it a try


      2. Ya but I found the link one better this one creates confusion as you do not see the actual link.


  5. Looks really tempting. I usually make appes from the leftover idli batter and will try your recipe next time. Thank you for sharing it.


  6. I love pakodas and thanks for this amazing recipe.


  7. These look a lot like mangodas. We have lived in Andhra decades back but never got a chance to try these. Another delicious recipe, Shail. Thanks for sharing it.


  8. I had one version of it in Jammu. Ever since, me and my family stop by a place in Jammu that sells it. Would finally try cooking this at home.


  9. Wow looks super tasty….would like to try these soon.


  10. My mother in law used to make these delicious punugulus! This post reminds me of her. Your recipe Is similar to hers! Everyone should try this out.

  13. Yumm! I love daal pakoras, this is a must try for me. Thank you – evening snack time, sorted!


  14. You always post such yummy recipes, i am definitely gonna try this, cupcakes are my favourite 😀


  15. The only way my elder one will consume lentils is through these pakoras. She will gobble these up in a min but a bowl of daal will take eons to finish during lunch time 🙂


  16. Oh yum! These remind me of a popular Delhi street food called ‘Ram Laddoos’ which are basically dal ke pakode…
