These Crunchy Balls were a mix of everything that was remaining. I had a little left over cooked rice, a couple of boiled potatoes, three slices of bread and some Chickpea flour. I wanted to finish it off and thus decided to mix everything and turn them into a snack. You can enjoy it plain or with a Ketchup or Mint chutney. I enjoyed it with some Chipotle Dip.
One bowl of cooked rice
2 Boiled potatoes
4 tbsps Besan/Chickpea flour
4 slices of Bread
6 green chillies
2 inch piece of ginger
7 garlic cloves
2 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp Jeera/Cumin
Oil to fry the Crunchy Balls
Dip the bread slices into water. Squeeze out all the water and crumble them in a bowl. Mash the boiled potatoes and cooked rice and tip it into the crumbled bread. Make a coarse paste of green chillies, ginger and garlic. Drop it along with the finely chopped coriander leaves, salt and the jeera into the bread rice and potato mixture. Add salt, Besan and lemon juice. Mix thoroughly. Make balls of the mixture and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan. Fry them four at a time on a medium flame till nice and crisp. You may fry them to a slightly dark brown or to a golden brown as shown in the picture. Both taste equally good. Serve with chutney, ketchup or a dip.
