Idli batter pakoda | easy tea time snack recipe

Pakoras are a perfect tea time snack. I love it irrespective of the weather. I know its perfect during monsoon. Here is a pakora recipe prepared with leftover idli batter and it is pretty much like famous Andhra Punugulu. Let us get started..
When you have Idli batter, but not enough to prepare idli or dosas for all you can make these yummy pakoras out of them. The sourness of the batter gets compensated when combined with onion and semolina. Ravai/Sooji and Rice flour add more crispiness to these pakoras.
