Ribbon Pakoda, Ribbon Murukku, Ola Pakoda, O'ttu Pakoda, Oatu Pakoda, Nada Thenkuzhal, Ribbon Karalu is all same name for Ribbon Pakdoa.  Made mostly during Diwali or other festival it's also great snack idea for tea time, party or kids snacks box.  Ribbon pakoda is popular South Indian murukku variety easily available in all the sweets shops, it's crunchy yet soft a perfect tea time snack.

I like ribbon pakoda a lot and normally make every Diwali but some how it never made it to blog until now, even this time I lost most of the step wise pictures of ribbon pakoda while copying the pictures so you can see in step wise pictures I added only few pictures, hope fully I can update the pictures soon.


Like most of the recipes even there are variety and variations in ribbon pakoda recipe and this is basic recipe we can adjust few things according to our needs. I add garlic powder as I always have stock of it :) you can skip garlic powder or paste if you want.

Allow to cool ribbon pakoda completely before storing in air tight containers. Shelf life for this is around 3 weeks.

  • You can add white or black sesame seeds.
  • Adding garlic powder or paste is optional, if you are adding garlic paste then it has to be very fine and not grainy.
  • Fry only in medium to slow flame for even cooking.
  • You can add fried gram (roasted chana dal/chutney dal/Pottukadalai) powder instead of besan. For that grind 1 cup fried gram dal in mixer, sieve and measure 1 cup flour and add with rice flour.

Enjoy crunchy pakoda with tea or make your festive more happening.
