Chaawal Ke Pakode

on December 22, 2014

What do you do, when you mess up with the cooking time of your rice generally ? Well, I sit and curse myself 😦 This happened last weekend, When I got busy with something else and forgot to check on my rice. And the rice went so soft, it was quite a pasty feeling 😦 Now, what to do with this was a big question. Of course, google bhaiya came of great help and I came across this awesome recipe !! It was so very delicious and my hubby just couldn’t guess which pakoda was it really ?? Hahahah !! Well, I was quite happy, as my rice was not wasted. You can do this with leftover rice too 🙂

Recipe Source : Veg recipes of India

  • 2 cup cooked rice (can be freshly cooked rice which has cooled down or leftover cooked rice)
  • 2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 green chili, chopped or ½ tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 inch ginger/adrak, finely chopped or grated
  • ½ cup chopped coriander leaves/dhania patta
  • 1 tsp cumin powder/jeera powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder/dhania powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder/haldi
  • a pinch of asafoetida/hing
  • 10 tbsp gram flour/besan
  • 5 to 6 tbsp water or as required
  • salt as required
  • oil for deep frying
  1. take the rice in a small bowl or pan. mash the rice with your hands or with a spoon. mashing the rice gives a soft texture to the pakoras.
  2. its always better to use rice which are cooked really well. if the rice appears dry after removing from fridge, then just sprinkle some water on it and microwave for a few minutes.
  3. add all the rest of the ingredients to the rice – besan/gram flour, chopped onions & ginger, coriander leaves, green chilies and all the spice powders. add salt.
  4. mix well and keep aside for for 8 to 10 minutes. the onions would release their juices and make the mixture a bit soft. then you can add water as required.
  5. after adding water, stir and mix very well.
  6. heat oil for frying in a kadai or pan.
  7. take spoonfuls and drop the mixture in hot oil. keep the temperature to medium heat.
  8. let the pakoras get cooked & browned lightly and then you turn them over and continue to fry.
  9. deep fry till the rice pakoras are crisp and golden. drain on paper kitchen towels.
  10. serve rice pakoras with green chutney or tomato sauce.
