Tips

Cashew Nut: Split Cashew Nuts are better than full ones for this Pakodi. It is enough if the Nuts are soaked for 2 hours. Do not over soak them.

Ginger Garlic Paste: This is fully optional. You could skip it if you don’t like it.

Dalda: If you add Dalda/Vanaspathi to the Flour, the Pakodi will be crisp and crunchy. If you don’t like that, you could add hot Ghee or Oil and mix it.

Tips for frying: The Oil should be hot while frying. Set the stove in low flame, add the flour and then fry on medium flame only. Cashew Nut Pakodi takes time to turn golden so have some patience and fry on medium flame.
