Last week, our dear friends from Coorg, a planter couple, visited us together with a couple of their friends. My husband asked me to make some fried snacks, something new and unique, as his dear friend loved to have a spicy fried snack along with his lunch.
We quickly plucked some fragrant agati blooms (Agatipoove in Malayalam, Agasthya Phule in Konkani, Heta or Hadgyache Phule in Marathi, Gaach Munga Phule in Hindi, Sesbania Grandiflora inflorescences) from the tree in our courtyard and I made hot and spicy agati flower pakodas. The foursome loved the pakodas so much that they were all praise for the snack. Seeing the success of this scrumptious dish, I decided to share the recipe with you. Today, I recreated the pakodas. They turned out delicious! Here is the recipe for you.
