I really got good encouraging comments on Quick Bonda which I prepared using left over Dosa Batter. This made me to prepare this another interesting recipe using Left Over Semiya. I made this crispy semiya pakoda with the left overs. This is also a simple recipe and kids will definitely enjoy. It is a great tea time snack as well.  Hope you will love this.



INGREDIENTS:
Left Over Semiya Upma   - 1 cup
Left Over cooked rice      - 1/2 cup (Optional
Green chillies                    - 4
Onion                               - 1/2
Gram flour                        - 2 tbsp
Maida/all purpose flour      - 2tbsp
Rice flour                           - 1 tbsp
Red chilli powder               - 1 tsp
Asafetida                           - Small pinch
Curry Leaves                     - 1 strand

Salt                                    -  To Taste
Oil                                      - To Fry


METHOD:

  1. Finely chop Onion, curry leaves, Coriander Leaves, Green chillies. In a vessel, Combine all the ingredients except oil and mix well using water to a thick batter. Dont add much water.
  2. Heat enough oil in a deep frying vessel and drop the batter slowly into small fritters. Don't overcrowd the vessel. Fry till it becomes golden brown.
  3. Serve hot with tea/coffee.
Tips:
  • This Recipe can be prepared with Fresh Semiya also. In this case, you need to boil Semiya with salt and Water till it becomes Soft and follow the same procedure.
  • You can add vegetables like Carrot, Beans, Peas as well.. Since I used Left Over, already all of these were included in it.
  • Let Over Rice is Optional Only. If you have , you can use it. I added it to increase the quantity, but adding this tasted good.
