Ribbon Bakoda

Its been a very long time since i blogged.I was bit busy with guests and travel.Have been to nagercoil,kutralam,kanyakumari for the vacation with my family and the trip was so memorable that i njoyed it to the fullest.Here posting my latest recipe,did this for the guests and writing it here as everyone said that it tasted good :)

Ribbon Bakoda:


1.Besan flour..........2 cups

2.Rice flour............. 1 cup

3.Hing a pinch

4.Red chilli powder.........1 tsp

5.salt to taste

6.Butter.............. 4 tbsp

7.White sesame seeds..........1 tbsp(soaked and drained)


1.Sieve gram flour and rice flour in a deep wide bowl.Bring in the chilli powder,salt,hing and sesame seeds and give it a nice mix.

2.Later add butter and blend well.At last add needed water and make it like a chapati dough.

Note:If u r doing in a large volume,divide the dry flour into small portions.Use the wet flour immediately,otherwise the bakodas will turn too dark in color.

3.Put a small portion of it in ribbon press and press it in hot oil.Fry till it reaches the golden color or until the bubbles in oil settle down.

4.Remove excess oil and store it in an air tight container after it cools.

5.Can be stored for 2 weeks or more.A Good home-made snack is ready to make any evening really special.

U can do this for any family function(like seemantham,naming function etc)or for occasions like diwali, adding this to savouries n snack list.Njoy eating:)
