Hello everyone! Today I am bringing you a dish which my late aunt loved a lot. Very simple to make and tastes yummy. Over the years I made bit of variations to it and it still tastes good. Hope you all like it.
This recipe consists of left over rice and it can be plain rice, biryani ,pulao or any cooked rice. We would make rice pakodas now.
Left over rice( depends on whatever quantity you have got)
½ cup plain yoghurt or dahi
1 cup besan (gram flour)
2green chillies cut in small pieces (increase according to quantity or taste)
Some coriander leaves cut
1/2tsp coriander seeds
1inch ginger cut in small pieces
Salt to taste
Oil to fry
Take rice in bowl and mix dahi (yoghurt) with it. Keep it aside for some time till dahi almost soaks rice. Water is not needed here at all. Put besan , salt, chillies, coriander seeds, coriander leaves and ginger pieces and mix them all together with dahi and rice. The consistency should be bit thick to make pakodas.
Heat oil in pan and slowly take one spoonful of rice dahi mix and drop in hot oil. Do the same with the whole batter. Deep fry pakodas till they turn bit golden.
Take them off the pan and put on paper to soak excess oil.
Take them on plate and serve hot with chutney or sauce of your choice.
They are best as tea time snacks and plus your rice is also used up in this.
Hope you enjoy this dish. Any comments or feedback is always welcome.
P.s I think most would be confused and I would suggest just go slow and add the dahi and besan and try out. if the besan is more it would become too hard and if its less rice would come out in oil. These pakodas are bit on softer side and with dahi you get bit of sour.khatta taste. The measurement is for indication purpose only.
