Crispy Rice Wada with leftover Rice
2020 has been a year of unfortunate events for many… the recent news about the Film actor Sushant Singh Rajput was shocking… May his soul RIP.
I have been experimenting with making wadas not urad dal wadas but wadas with rice…. During my first attempt I was not happy with the results… I did not give up and tried another method of making it and the result was crispy rice wadas….I am excited to share this recipe with you as it requires simple ingredients that would be available in your kitchen…. So let’s start cooking “Leftover Crispy Rice Wadas”
Cooked rice – 1 cup Rice flour – 1/4th cup Semolina (Rava) – 1/4th cup Yoghurt (Curd) – 1/4th cup Ginger – 1 inch finely chopped Green Chillies – 2 finely chopped Curry leaves – 15 to 20 roughly cut Coriander leaves – a handful finely cut Crushed pepper – ½ tsp Finely cut coconut pieces – 1 tbsp (optional) Salt to taste Baking Soda – 1/4th tsp Oil for deep frying
Take leftover cooked rice and transfer to a mixer jar and add in yoghurt and make a coarse paste. Transfer this to a bowl and add in the rice flour, Semolina and mix well. Add in rest of the ingredients from ginger to baking soda and mix well to form a dough. Please do not add any water in this mixture. Allow this to rest for around 5 to 10 minutes.
Heat oil in a Kadai. Rub your palms with some water and scoop out small balls of the prepared dough. Press the dough gently into the shape of wada with a hole in the middle. Fry these wada’s in hot oil on medium flame till they turn golden brown and crispy. I served them with Sambar and Rasam…. You will find the recipe’s of Sambar and Rasam on the below links :
