Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: about 15 fritters

Ingredients

  • 1 cup leftover rice
  • 4 tbsp besam (gram flour)
  • 1 tbsp chopped hara dhania (cilantro)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1-2 finely chopped green chillies
  • 1/2 tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp amchur (mango powder)
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • water to make the batter, as needed
  • vegetable oil to fry the pakoda, as needed

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, add the leftover rice as well as all of the ingredients (except for water and cooking oil). Stir until everything is well combined. Gradually add water to make a batter that is neither too thin nor too thick. Set aside.
  2. Put the vegetable oil in a wok and heat it on high heat.
  3. When the oil is hot, reduce heat to medium and start dropping in small portions of the batter by hand. Let them cook for about 1 minute undisturbed.
  4. Flip the fritters and continue to fry, flipping frequently until they are crisp and golden.
  5. Transfer the cooked pakodas to a paper-towel-lined plate and finish frying the remaining batter.
  6. Serve with mint chutney and tomato sauce.

      Sounds interesting, though we may not find all the ingredients. Anyway the creative cook may be able to do something similar and call it by a different name. Thank you.
