2 ways farali bhajiya | sabudana pakoda | aloo pakoda

Farali bhajiya

Farali pakoda is deep-fried snacks prepared during the Navratri fasting, or other upvaas or vrat days like Ekadasi, Mahashivratri, or Janmashtami. In this recipe I share 2 types of farali pakoda, one is crispy sabudana pakoda and the other is aloo chips pakoda. Both pakoda are crispy from the outside and soft from the inside, this mildly spiced bhajiya with your choice of chutney or tomato sauce will surely satisfy your cravings for a delicious snack along with Tea or Coffee. Do try this!

The key to making tasty farali bhajiya at home are:

For sabudana pakoda

  • the soaking is extremely important for this recipe or as a matter even for sabudana vada. Use 1:1 or equal sabudana to water ratio to soak the sabudana. if sabudana is not soaked properly it may burst and explode while deep frying.
  • dry soaked sabudana so its moisture will evaporate and mash soaked sabudana slightly, so it will easily bind into bhajiya batter.
  • deep fry bhajiya on medium flame till it becomes crispy from outside.

For aloo pakoda

  • I made bhajiya batter with rajgira flour but you can also use singhara flour or farali flour in place of rajgira flour.
  • Bhajiya batter should have medium-thick consistency, so it will easily coat potato chips.
  • I add some spices to potatoes slices to make them more flavorful. You can keep it plain also.
