A delicious deep fried snack.  Best with Tea / Coffee / Black coffee. Kadachakka fritters in Malayalam / Jeev Kadgi Fritters in Konkani.


Kada chakka slices – 1 cup or 18 slices ( wash , drain out water and wipe well with a kitchen towel )

For marination:

Mix 1 teaspoon chilli powder, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder. Apply it over kada chakka slices and keep aside for 15 minutes. Steam in the pressure cooker for 5 – 8 minutes or MICROWAVE HIGH for 2 minute 30 seconds. Allow to cool.

For the batter:

1,Gram flour ( besan ) – 1 cup (200 g )
2, Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon
3, Chilli powder – 1 teaspoon
4, Salt to taste ( approximately ¾ teaspoon )

In a bowl, make a smooth batter of the ingredients from 1-5 ( batter should not be too watery ) with water. 

Heat oil in a  frying pan on  high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and dip each kadachakka slices in this batter  (6 slices at a time - depending upon the size of the frying pan / kadai) and deep fry on a medium heat till golden colour on both the sides. Drain out from the oil and place it on kitchen towel to absorb extra oil. Serve hot. It’s a tasty evening snack.
