Quail Pakoda

Quail Pakoda

Quail Pakoda:

Kaadai Pakoda. Kaadai Pakora. Deep fried Quails. Fried Quails.

I love this tender birds! They are gamier in taste, low in calories, better than chicken, low fat/thin skin…pretty fast in getting cooked! What else do we want!! Hmmm today I deep fried it, just for a variation! They turned out super crispy!


Quails 1-2 chopped to bite size
Chili powder 1 spoon
MSG 1 pinch
Soy sauce 2 spoons
Ginger-garlic paste 1 spoon
Egg whites 1
Lemon juice few spoons
Corn flour 4 spoons
Oil for deep frying
Curry leaves fried to garnish
Garlic 6-8 chopped & fried to garnish.


Marinate meat with all the ingredients mentioned above(except oil & garnish items). Let this sit for about 2 whole hours.

Heat oil in a wok. When it comes to smoky hot…deep fry them quickly for about 2-4 minutes.

Garnish with curry leaves and garlic. Enjoy as a snack/appetizer.
