  8. soda-bi-carbonate - a small pinch
  9. salt to taste
  10. oil for deep frying.

  • Hard boil the eggs and keep it aside to cool.
  • In the meantime mix all the ingredients from no 2-9 in a deep bowl adding little water to make a smooth paste.Paste should be thick.
  • After that cut the each egg into 4 halves.
  • Heat the oil into kadai or deep frying pan 
  • Now dip the eggs in a besan mixture and drop it in a hot oil.
Note:If you want that nice crispy pakoda then 1st fry the pakoda for a few mins or till the outside batter is  properly cooked.Take the pakoda out of the oil.Finish frying all the pakoda the same way.Then immediately re-fry the pakoda in the  that same oil till crisp.
