Recipe Notes

If you want you can use semolina(rava) instead of using rice flour to keep the pazham pori more crispy.
To make it a little healthy recipe, you can use atta flour rather then using maida.
Turmeric is optional, so you can avoid using it or use it just a pinch so that the turmeric flavor shouldn't come.
