Maida Pakoras / Diamond Pakoras

Cooking time : 20 mins.

This is a simple recipe that can be prepared using Maida Flour. This has been one of my favourite that remembers my childhood. My Grandma used to prepare this so often and store it in an air tight container. It is so crispy and can be munched anytime. It goes very well with a cup of Tea/coffee esp during rainy days. It is very easy to prepare with the available ingredients to serve unexpected guests. Coming to the recipe...


Maida 2 cups
Onion 1 medium size
Green Chillies 3 - Finely Chopped
Red Chilli Powder 1 tsp
Salt To Taste
Curry Leaves As Required
Coriander Leaves As Required
Oil As Required


  1. In a Vessel, Mix all the ingredients except Oil by adding necessary water slowly to form a dough.   Let it be for 10 mins.
  2. Flatten the dough using Rolling pin and make Chapathis out of it. If the dough is bit sticky, dust with more flour while flattening.  Cut into diamond shapes using knife.
  3. Heat oil in a deep bottom pan and fry till golden brown. Don't overcrowd the Pan.
  4. Remove from the flame and place it in kitchen tissues to absorb excess oil.
  5. Store it in a air tight container once it cools down.
  • Don't fry much as you won't get good taste and the maida with be so hard.
