  1. Make pakodas. I have mentioned how to make pakodas in snack items. Cut onions, smash tomatoes in a mixie. Make ginger-garlic paste after peeling off the skin. Grind grated coconut, poppy seeds, green chillies, cumin seeds, cashew nuts and make them to a paste.
  2. Heat oil in a pan/kadai, add cumin seeds, ginger-garlic paste, onions, fry them well, now add tomatoes which are smashed, add red chilly powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, little salt, curry leaves and boil them for some 3 minutes. Now add coconut paste. Finally add pakodas and garnish with coriander leaves.
  3. Pakoda kuruma can be served with white rice, idly, dosa, chappathi, poori.

Note: Add only little salt to kuruma and salt is already added to pakodas. Pakodas should be soaked in the kuruma for atleast half-an-hour so that the taste will be really good.
