It hard to believe that rice dumplings made from leftover cooked rice could be so delicious. Whenever I have leftover rice, my son reminds me to make this dish. It is very easy and will be ready in few minutes.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Cooked leftover rice soaked in yogurt overnight – 3 cup
Gram flour/Besan – 1 cup
Oat flour or Wheat flour – 1/2 cup
Frozen fenugreek leaves 1 cube or fresh fenugreek leaves chopped – 1 cup
Red chili powder – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
Asafoetida – 1 pinch
Sugar (optional) – 1 1/2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Olive oil – 2 tbsp
Baking soda/Soda by carb – 1/4 tsp
Mustered seeds – 1 tsp
Sesame seeds – 1 tbsp
1. Mix all the ingredients except mustard and sesame seeds in a bowl. Make a soft dough. You won’t need water to make the dough since rice is already soaked in yogurt but if you need, add little water. You can add wheat flour instead of ground oats then the dumplings won’t be gluten-free.
5. When dumplings are ready, serve with masala chai or drink of your choice. It is crispy from outside and soft from inside. It can be serve hot or at room temperature.
It is fun to make something special from the leftover.
