You may surprised to see the name soft pakodas, yep we make two types of pakodas one is extremely crispy pakodas and the another one is soft pakodas. Soft pakodas aka medhu pakodas will have baking soda in their pakoda batter while we add more rice flour but not baking soda in crispy pakoda's batter, apart from it you can add any veggies or greens in these both pakodas.
