Chicken Pakoda is a very savory snack item, ideal for the evening to accompany tea. The good thing about it is it takes less time for preparation, yet wins the hearts of all, from old to young. I prepare it often at home, but somehow have always missed out on uploading the recipe. So without delaying further, here it goes:
Ingredients: Cooking time: 30 minutes
ü 200 gm boneless minced chicken (boiled)
ü 3 tbsp of onion paste
ü 2 tsp green chilli paste
ü 1 tsp ginger paste
ü 1 tsp black pepper powder
ü 1 tsp garam masala powder
ü 1 tsp dry mango powder
ü 3 tbsp corn flour
ü 3 tbsp rice flour
ü 1 egg, beaten
ü Bread crumbs as per need
ü Salt to taste
ü White oil for deep frying
1) In a mixing bowl, toss all the ingredients together - chicken, ginger paste, onion paste, green chilli paste, corn flour, rice flour, black pepper powder, salt, dry mango powder, garam masala powder and egg. Mix them well. Then add breadcrumbs to help binding. Add as much breadcrumbs as you need to bind the mixture.
2) Make small balls out of the mixture and deep fry them in smoking hot oil.
3) Serve them with any favourite sauce of yours.
