RICE FRITTERS / PAKORAS

Recipe Source & Acknowledgement: Homely Food

This is a wonderful idea to make rice fritters with leftover rice, it may be plain rice, or pulao. The fritters came out mouth-melting and very scumptious. First time I tried out this recipe, not only me, my family also relished as well as enjoyed this easy to make pakora a lot. Thanks Meenu for sharing this toothsome fritters with us. If any unexpected guests will come, you can serve this fabulous fritters within 15 minutes accompaning with a cup of piping hot tea or coffee. It is an excellent tea-time snack. Today I tried it out and here is the recipe.

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 Cup Leftover Rice
1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt / Curd
3/4 Cup Gram Flour (besan)
A Pinch of Asafoetida (hing)
2-3 Green Chillies (finely chopped)
2 tbsps Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves (cilantro)
1 tbsp Roasted Coriander Seeds (crushed)
10 Curry Leaves (chopped)
1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Onion
1" Ginger (minced)
A Pinch of Baking Soda
Salt To Taste
Oil For Frying

METHOD:
Take rice in a large bowl, add yogurt in it. Mix nicely and keep it aside for 10 minutes or till rice almost soaks yogurt. 

Now mix gram flour, asafoetida, green chillies, coriander leaves, crushed coriander seeds, curry leaves, minced ginger, baking soda and salt with the rice-yogurt mixture.

Mix everything nicely to make a thick batter to form fritters. (No need to add water in it)

Heat oil in a pan. Take a spoonful batter, give a shape of flat ball, drop into the hot oil. Deep fry till both sides turn golden brown. Follow the same process for rest of the batter. Take them off the pan and serve immediately with chutney / sauce. Enjoy this crispy evening snacks!!!
