Best Of Waste: Make These Crispy Vadas From Leftover Rice


Welcome to the world of Best Of Waste! Today, we'll show you how to turn leftover rice into delicious crispy vadas. Let's get started!


First, take 2 cups of leftover rice and mash it well. Add 1 finely chopped onion, 2 chopped green chilies, 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste, and 1 tsp cumin seeds. Mix well.


Next, add 1/2 cup besan (gram flour), 1/4 cup rice flour, 1/4 cup chopped coriander leaves, and salt to taste. Mix everything together to form a thick batter.


Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Take a small portion of the batter and shape it into a vada. Gently slide it into the hot oil and fry until golden brown.


Repeat the process with the remaining batter. Make sure to fry the vadas in small batches to ensure even cooking.


Once the vadas are crispy and golden brown, remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.


For a twist, you can also add some grated cheese or paneer to the batter for a cheesy vada. Trust us, it's a game-changer!


Serve the vadas hot with your favorite chutney or dip. They make for a perfect snack or appetizer for any occasion.


Not only are these vadas delicious, but they also help reduce food waste. So next time you have leftover rice, don't throw it away, make these crispy vadas instead!
