This recipe I have seen in a magazine long time back. I made this many times since then. A very good snack with a difference. It takes a little time but there is no compromise with taste :). So here I am presenting my version of pakora (I twisted it by chance) :).
Ingredients: Sufficient For Two People
¾ Cup macaroni
1 Medium sized onion sliced
2 Green chilies chopped finely
1 Cup cauliflower florets
½ teaspoon carom/ajvain seeds
½ teaspoon Red chili powder
½ teaspoon turmeric powder
A pinch of soda
1.5 Cup besan
1 teaspoon chat masala
Oil for frying
Salt as per taste
Method: Boil macaroni in salted water. Drain all the water and separate it.
Now mix all the ingredients except oil. Adjust salt as per the taste. Make a batter, use some water if required. Pour spoonful of batter into the hot oil and fry till they become golden brown.
Sever hot with tomato sauce and sprinkle some chat masala over them. Original recipe was just macaroni and onion, cauliflower was added by mistake. But we enjoyed with this combo :).
These Pakodas are calling me, looks so delicious, would love to have them with my evening chai.
Very innovative dish using macaroni in pakodas, Bhawana!
Cauliflower and macaroni sounds so good..this pakoras should be great pair with chai
Pasta and veggie in a dish together! Brilliant! Loved the recipe and I bet its a huge hit with kids and adults both. I would certainly grab a plate myself happily along with a cup of tea.

That is a really good combo. I do a pakoda with leftover mac and cheese, the addition of cauliflower will be so awesome.
I remember you telling me about this pakoda. But never got a chance to taste them. Once the monsoon sets in this year, I will give these a try.
It looks delicious, definitely the kids will like this one.
this is quite innovative and very interesting. i could have never thought of it. brilliant.
A perfect tea time treat.. macroonia nd cauliflower fritters looks delish..
Macaroni and cauliflower pakoda sounds super inviting. This will be a huge hit with kids too, I am sure.
