Ribbon Beda recipe - Ribbon?

Are you wondering why this snack is called Ribbon Beda? If so, just take a look at the picture.


May be my picture is not that good. But,Isn't it looking like ribbons? The shape of this snack is like that of ribbons. A spicy ribbon. I love this snack and this is my last in the Vinayaka chaturthi series of snacks and sweets. This very easy to prepare snack is also done with the Muruku maker. You just have the insert the right impression to get the shape of ribbons.


1 cup of Rice flour
1 cup of Besan flour
1 cup of powdered channa dal (Odachakadala in Tamil, If anyone can tell me the english name, plz!!!)
1 tsp seasme seeds
1 tsp Hing
Salt to taste
2 tbsn Ghee/Clarified butter
1 tsp chilli powder

Oil for deep frying


Make the dough with all the above ingredients.

The dough must be a little loose so that we will be able to press it via the muruku maker easily.

Use the corresponding impression to get the Ribbon shape.

Hold the Muruku maker on top of oil and press it. The Ribbon beda will come out and deep fry it in oil till they become light brown.

Allow it to cool and then store it in an air tight container.

With this recipe my snack series for Krishna Jeyanthi/Vinayaka chaturthi is over. Check out my other snack recipes in my recipe index.
