Week 3 Day 2 of BM #60 -
My mom recycles the leftovers and makes some innovative dishes. That streak is definitely passed on to me :). I guess it is inherent in every mom to reduce the wastage of food. But these days, either the food is given away to the needy or reused in some delicious recipes. Here is one such recipe which turned out to be a delicious surprise to my family.
Though such dressed up leftovers gives the chance to my family to tease me endlessly, I am sure they enjoy eating these just as much as I enjoy cooking them. :)
Recipe Source - friend's mom
Cooked Rice 1 cup
Whole Wheat Flour 1/4 cup
Besan / Gram Flour 1/2 cup
Cabbage, Carrot, grated 1/4 cup each
Ginger-Green Chili Paste as needed
Salt as needed
Yogurt 2 Tbsp
Vegetable Oil for shallow fry
* Grated onion, potato and any other vegetables can be used.
Method Of Preparation -
Coarsely crush the cooked rice, mix in the flours, grated vegetables, ginger-green chili paste, salt.
Knead into a soft dough adding as much yogurt as needed.
Pinch lime sized portions of the dough and place between greased plastic sheets. Pat into thin disc and transfer on to a hot griddle/tawa. [I used a puri press/tortilla maker for the job].
Spray oil as needed and cook on both sides until they are golden brown.
Remove and continue with the rest of the dough.
Serve it with Sauce of your choice or a simple raitha tastes great too.
