Killu Vadam

    Its my long time plan to make vathal at home. When i was in chennai, there is no demand for "Hot Sun" to dry/make vathal but in my current place, i'll get Hot Sun max of 1 or 2 hours but still i didn't leave my hope on trying this. At the same, my main intention is not to waste any, due to lack of sun. So, planned to try this using leftover rice. Not bad, it came out very well. Since i didn't get proper heat here for drying, it tooks more than a week just to dry 2 cups of vathal batter.


ALL YOU NEED:
Cooked Rice 3 cups
Chopped Small Onion 7 Nos.
Green Chilly 3 Nos.
Cumin Seeds 1 1/2 tsp
Hing Pinch
Salt 1/4 tsp

METHOD:
     Take cooked rice in a mixer, blend it until it comes to a smooth paste. DONOT add water. Now transfer it to a bowl. Take 2 Nos. of green chilly in a mixer and lend it again. Transfer it to the cooked rice bowl. Now add remaining ingredients like hing, chopped small onion, chopped 1 green chilly and cumin seeds. Once done, take a white cloth or even a polythene sheet, take small spoon (use kids spoon) of the batter and place it evenly on the sheet. Once done, leave the sheet/cloth in sun, until it gets dried completely, there should be any moisture. Make sure you keep tossing on each day until it gets dried. Once its dried, fry it and enjoy.

Note: You can also add tomato puree or carrot puree or spinach puree, just to add an extra taste.
