Fry pakoda's in medium flame. don't use high flame.
To check whether oil is hot, drop a small dough in oil. If it bubbles up, then oil is hot. If the dough stays at bottom, then oil is not enough hot. 
Adjust chilli powder to your taste.
Finely  chopped green chillies can also be added to the dough.
Make a thick dough. Don't add more water. Addin more water will lead to absorption of more oil while frying and pakoda won't be crisp also.
