Kuttu ki dahi pakodi- Mahashivratri special

On special occasion of "Maha Shivratri" , I had prepared this fasting dish which is made with buckwheat flour(kuttu ka aata) and flavored with sweet curd.

During the festival of Maha Shivratri, many variety of food items, specially for fast , are prepared which consists of sweets and beverages of milk, buckwheat flour (kuttu ka aata) items like Poories, paranthas and pakodis, fresh fruits, sago(sabudana) vada, khichdi and kheer and many other.....

1 bowl buckwheat flour(kuttu ka aata)
1 green chili (nicely cut into small pieces)
rock salt according to taste
water (enough to make a smooth paste of Flour)
oil for deep frying
1 tablespoon powdered sugar(bura)
beaten curd (for pakodis to dip in properly)

 In a bowl mix the flour and water nicely to form a thick paste.
Slightly whip it for few minutes to make the paste light and fluffy.
Add the chopped chili and seasonings. Mix well.
Heat oil in a wok(kadahi). When the oil is hot enough, make small round balls of the paste and slide them slowly in to the hot oil.
Fry them for 2-3 minutes on medium flame till they turn crispy from all sides.
Place on an absorbent paper to remove excess oil.
Put these pakodis in water to make them soft.
Mix powdered sugar in beaten curd and mix well.
Press each pakodis gently to remove water and transfer them in curd .
Garnish with little red chili powder.
"Kuttu ki Dahi pakodi" is ready. Enjoy it with fresh fruits during the fast....

Optional notes:
One can add Boiled potatoes in the pakodis to make it more tatsy.
