Ribbon Pakoda

Ribbon Pakoda is a snack that is very popular in south India. It tastes best when served in room temperature. It can be eaten as-is or can be used as sev for various chat items and it is also used in Mixture. It can be stored in an air tight container for at least 2 weeks. You need the bakshanam maker with the ribbon pakoda stencil to do this. If you add lot more chili powder, then the color would be darker like picture 2.

Garlic Croutons

I love the small piece of bread that is served in the soups and salads.. It adds a nice crunchy texture and delicious flavor to the soup or salad.. I actually eat them as is sometimes!!! A crouton is a small piece of sautéed or rebaked bread, often cubed and seasoned, that is used to add texture and flavor to salads and soups, or eaten as a snack food. The word crouton is derived from the French crouton, itself derived from croûte, meaning "crust". Croutons are available ready from the market, but homemade is very easy and also different flavors can be tried at home.
