Leftover Rice Pakoras

I had a bowl of day old rice sitting in the fridge. I remembered a recipe which my friend Hema constantly use to talk about. I called her up and got the entire recipe. The pakoras tasted excellent and can be a very good competitor to the crispy onion pakoras.

2 1/2 cup left over rice
1/4 cup gram flour
1/4 cup roasted gram ( Pottukadalai ) flour
1/4 cup or less white rava
1 big onion finely chopped
3 to 4 green chillies (finely chopped)
2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
3/4 cup finely chopped coriander and mint leaves- combined (4:1)
Salt(as per taste)
Oil( for deep frying)

1.Mash the rice and add the onion,giger-garlic paste,chillies,coriander leaves and mint leaves and mix well. Now, add the gram flour , roasted gram flour and salt little by little to the rice mixture.These two flours are just enough to bind the mixture, do not add more, make sure that the gram flour does not dominate the mixture. Finally, add the rava and mix well. Do not add water. The moisture in the rice and the onion is enough to bind all the ingredients.
2.Heat a pan with oil. Once it is hot, at medium flame drop small flattened pieces of dough( place a small piece of mixture over the ring,middle and index fingers and slightly press it with the thumb) into the oil in batches.
3.Fry until golden brown on all the sides. Remove and drain on a oil absorbent sheet. Serve it hot with your favorite dip.
The rice must neither be grainy or soggy. When mashed within the fingers it must easily blend with other ingredients given. One or two grains left as such is fine.

Few weeks without blogging and not holding the camera while cooking, is not helping me now :( . I totally forget to get the stepwise pictures :((((.
