Pakoda is a deep fried snack which is most popular street food all over Tamil Nadu. My hubby loves pakoda to the core, when we were abroad we use to get pakoda from VelayudhaNadar Shop, sivakasi and would hold it almost for 2 to 3 weeks. Not only in while abroad but also whenever we go to our hometown, we never miss to get this pakoda. Not only my hubby even my dad, grandpa and the whole family till my son loves to have Milk rice and pakoda for dinner. I would say that this one of the staple dinner among all sivakasi and virudhunagar people.
Thought of trying it the pakoda with bittergourd and something different than the usual recipe, besan/gram flour is used in pakoda and I have substituted corn meal/maize flour instead of besan/gram flour.
Bittergourd pakoda was slightly bitter in taste, but as it was crispy and crunchy my kids (9 year and 5 year) loved it to the core. This can be served in various forms as tea-time snack, side dish for lunch, side dish for dinner along with rice. I would say try this combination – Steamed rice (mashing consistency), boiled milk with a tsp of sugar (optional) and this pakoda would taste heavenly for dinner. Give a try…
” Wish you all a Happy Maha Shivaratri” from MADRAASI
Maha Shivaratri is celebrated once in a year in late winter and before the arrival of spring, marks Maha Shivaratri which means “the Great Night of Shiva”. It is observed by remembering shiva and chanting prayers, fasting, doing yoga and mediatating. The ardent devotees stay awake all night and visit Shiva temple.
In Tamil nadu, people gather in temple at the night of Maha Shivratri and do meditation or chant or write “Om Namashivaya” the whole night. Also in few places there would be music concert, stage dramas or dance depicting the life of Lord Shiva throughout the whole night.
