Soak the chana dali for 4 hours

Blend chana dali with little salt, 1 green chilli, coriander leaves, curry leaves and 1″ piece of ginger.

Deep fry in oil in medium heat by scooping the paste in a spoon.
Let it fry until the pakodas become crispy and golden brown.
Don’t make too big size it may cook outside but remain raw inside.
Drain the pakodas to a tissue paper to soak excess oil

    If you look at authentic oriya recipe for Pakudi, coriander never used. Only curry leaves are added.

    I am not sure about curry leaves in authentic odia pakudi! I do not see any problem in adding corriander leaves and still keep it odia!! Pakudi is an all india dish! Where is the reference for curry leaves making it authentic odia?
