Another fantastic recipe given by my Kamala paati!It is simply superb and irresistible. I can eat this all day!
1 cup boiled rice/ Puzhungal arsi
1 cup grated coconut
5-6 green chillies
salt to taste
Soak boiled rice for 3 hours. Drain the water completely.
Grind together soaked rice with coconut gratings salt and green chillies to a semi-fine paste.
Do not add water while grinding. you want it to be like a vada batter. Smear oil on a plastic sheet. Roll out a ball of the dough with wet hands. Pat it on the sheet as thin as you can.
Slip it into hot oil and deep fry. You will surprised to see it puff up just like a puri. Turn over and continue frying till it is golden brown.
Serve with pulimolagai/ molaga thokku or just eat it as it is...
