Crispy and spicy chicken pakkavada

Pakkavada is my family’s all time favorite snack 🙂 . We used to make different varieties of pakkavada for our weekend snacks. I think pakkavada is the most easiest snack I have ever tired 😉 . No need of special ingredients. Onion and besan will always available in our store room. So what only we need is 10 minutes time. Instead of bakery items I think pakkavada is the best option we can go for. We can make pakkavada more healthy by adding vegetables or anything you want. You can find my crispy onion pakkavada,Vegetabke Pakkavada recipes here. This time I tried chicken pakkavada. My husband was doubtful before I making this. He said me, you just fry that chicken and give me I will have it and make normal pakkavada :p . (He likes chicken fry more among any chicken dish). I gifted him a smile and nicely escaped to kitchen and started making pakkavada. What to say our chicken pakkavada was a great success. He tasted it before me 😀 . My kids also liked it. It was very crunchy and aromatic because of the leaves I have added. Hope you all will like this chicken pakkavada. You can find other snacks recipes here .Mulaku Bajji, Gobi 65,Mintvada
