Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl. Make sure the dough is not too soft, the patties need to retain their shape. If you find it very soft, add some more gram flour. Using your hands, form desired shapes.
Grease a pan with a little oil, and place the patties. Cook till golden brown and crisp on the outside, on both sides. This should take around 5 to 7 minutes per side on a slow flame. Serve with chutney or eat as it is.
If the rice is too dry the following morning, sprinkle a little water, cover and microwave for 2 minutes until it is somewhat softened. Very dry rice will not hold together in these patties.
You can add any flavors to this recipe. Be creative.
You can use any left-over rice for this recipe. If you have left-over lemon rice or puliyogare etc, that would make an excellent choice too. You wouldn’t need too many extra flavors then (spices and the like…)
We almost always have some kind of left-over rice stocked in our refrigerators and so here is a fun and healthy dish that can be cooked up in a jiffy. This recipe is very versatile, so feel free to play around with flavors.
