Rice vathal is my favorite snack & side dish. In India, when summer gets start everyone busy to prepare rice vathal in home, share it with their neighbors & friends. It can store for more than a month. I made this rice vathal with leftover rice. It is best side dish with all varieties of rice. Sprinkle some chat masala on it & have it for snack. Best snack with guacamole.
Leftover cooked rice – 1 cup (soaked in water)
Green chilies – 3 nos.
Ginger – small size
Cumin / jeera – 2 tsp
Salt as required
Remove the soaked water in leftover rice.
Add the rice, green chilies, ginger in the blender & grind it into smooth paste (don’t add water).
Now add jeera, salt & mix well.
Pour the mixture in the clean plastic sheet by using spoon & direct sun dry for one day.
Once it get dried, peel it & stored in air tight container.
Keep the oil on medium flame, deep fry rice vathal & remove the excess oil using paper towel.
Serve & enjoy it !!
If didn’t get enough sunlight, keep it on room temperature for 2 – 3 days.
Once it get dried, it is easy to peel.
If don’t want to deep fry, microwave for 30 – 60 minutes & enjoy it.
