Homemade Dakor Na Gota Mix

Homemade Dakor Na Gota Mix is a spiced coarse chickpea flour to prepare for a hidden gem from Gujarat. This mix is prepared with coarse chickpea flour and various spices. 

 'Dakor Na Gota' means Deep fried chick flour Pakoda from the place called Dakor, Gujarat. Dakor Na Gota instant mix is easily available in any Indian grocery shop throughout the world, but somehow I am not entirely satisfied with their taste although my mum always used to buy shop bought mix. So with so many trials and error, a few years back I tamed this recipe and I am totally satisfied with it, so now I don't have to buy Dakor Na Gota Mix from outside anymore, and no need to sigh! This recipe is so easy and delicious, made fresh at home with ingredients that you already have in your kitchen.

This Gota Mix stays fresh in an airtight container for 8-10 weeks, so whenever you have the craving to eat Dakor Na Gota or suddenly unexpected guests pay you a visit, don't send them back just with tea but prepare scrumptious Dakor Na Gota  (recipe to be followed) with Masala Chai :)

This Dakor Na Gota Mix recipe is my own, I have perfected after so many trials and errors, So please keep in mind if you want to use this recipe on your blog or anywhere else, then I would surely like the credit of it. You can do this by linking it back to my blog and this post.  

You can adjust spices according to your taste but to obtain a perfect Dakor Na Gota follow this measurement.
