A great way of using up leftover rice is to make Pakora. You can add finely chopped vegetables or just add a little spice and fry it to a crisp. Here I have added boiled sweet corn, grated carrot, coriander and mint leaves. Best enjoyed either with a green chutney or any of the ready sauces or ketchups.
- 1 large bowl of leftover rice
- 1 carrot grated
- A fistful of sweet corn boiled
- 1 inch piece of ginger
- 4 garlic cloves
- 4 green chillies
- Coriander leaves
- 7 mint leaves
- 5 tbsps rice flour
- 2 tbsps Besan/Chickpea flour
- Oil for frying
Mash the rice well. Make a coarse paste of the green chillies, garlic and ginger. Chop the coriander and mint leaves fine. Add the boiled corn, grated carrot, green chilly, ginger garlic paste, chopped coriander and mint leaves, salt, rice flour and Besan, to the mashed rice. Roll into desired shape. Roll into bread crumbs and deep fry to a crisp golden brown.
