Pakodi or pakora is a perfect snack for a rainy day and they turn even more delicious with a cup of piping hot tea.These can be created using the simple onion , potato , green chilli , cauliflower , cabbage , paneer , plantain, spinach or even chicken.

In Andhra Mirchi Bajji ( green chilli akora) is very famous , there are lots of small stalls on the road side that sell these delicious bajjis stuffed with finely chopped onions with a dash of lemon that make there extremely delicious.

Today am posting the recipe of Potato pakodi.

Take a big bowl add the flour,salt,red chilli powder,ginger garlic paste, ajwain and a pinch of soda , mix all the dry ingredients well.
