Steaming hot and crispy noodles pakoras are ready. Serve with tomato sauce or green coriander chutney and enjoy eating.

HOW TO BOIL NOODLES
Take enough water in any utensil so that noodles get drenched fully. When water starts boiling add 1 tsp oil and noodles into it. Once noodles become tender, drain the excess water with help of a sieve and pour some cold water.

TIP
For making pakoras crispy we have added corn flour into gram flour, but 1 pinch baking soda can also be used instead of corn flour.
