  • Take a large bowl and make a thick smooth paste using gram flour, chili powder, salt, and water. You have to add the water little by little only. Be careful that you have to make a thick smooth paste only. Once done, add the baking powder and mix well to combine.

Add the chopped onion, chopped parsley leaves, chopped fried chicken (i used leftover broasted chicken for making this pakoda), chopped green chilies (if any), and finally the breadcrumbs. Combine all these ingredients well using a spoon.
  • Then knead it to form a smooth dough using your hand. You can sprinkle some water to wet the dough (do not add more water). 
  • Now heat a wok or kadai with oil for deep frying.
  • Make very small balls out of this dough and slide it into the hot oil. Deep fry it until golden and crisp. Make sure that the oil must be medium-low while frying.
  • Fry until golden and crisp. Transfer it to a plate and drain the excess oil using a paper towel.
