Leftover Rice Pakodas

For the final day under Snacking for Kids, I have this delicious pakodas made with leftover cooked rice. I have already posted another version of leftover pakodas, this one is slightly different and was very much loved by Konda. So I thought I should as well record what she liked differently as well.

These turn out very crispy hot from kadai, so ensure you take care not to burn your mouth. Cooking with leftover food is always a challenge. With cooked rice, we mostly make Ragi Sangati, some times Rice Parathas and then sometimes like these pakodas.



Leftover Rice Pakodas

Ingredients Needed:

Leftover cooked rice - 1 cups
Besan / Gram flour - 1 cup
Fried Gram flour - 2 tbsp
Onions - 1 big
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Hing - 2 big pinches
Green Chilis - 2 medium
Red chili powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying.

How to make the rice onion pakodas

In a bowl, take the rice, mash it well till it becomes thick mass. Take the onion julienne, salt, red chili powder, besan, coriander leaves and hing.

Mix well, add the fried gram flour and add just enough water to get a thick batter. Let it sit for 10 mins.

Heat a kadai with oil. When it's hot, gently drop a piece of the mix, see it comes up. When the oil is hot, sprinkle the pakoda batter directly on the hot oil. The pakodas need not be of uniform shape or size. Cook onn medium flame on both sides.

Drain to a kitchen towel.

This also goes for my Kids Delight event, hosted by Sandhya themed on Snacking all the way

These look so crispy and addictive. I was also wondering if they absorb a lot of oil.
