What do you do when you make fried rice and then your kids say they don’t want to have fried rice? Hmm that is when I came up with this idea of Chitranna Vada / Fried Rice Vada. These Vadas vanished in a jiffy.
Try this recipe and I am sure you will love it. You can use fresh fried rice or left over rice too.
Recipe for Chitranna Vada / Fried Rice Vada
2 Cups Fried Rice
1 Cup Channa Dal/ Bengal Gram
2 Tsp Ginger Paste
6 Garlic Pods
Salt to Taste
6 Green Chillies
3 Onions finely chopped
Oil for frying
Soak Channa dal for 1 hour. Add ginger paste ,garlic pods, green chillies, fresh Coriander and grind it to fine paste. Add less than 1/4 cup of water. Pour this paste in a bowl. Grind the fried rice to fine paste too.Do not add water while grinding. Add this paste to the channa dal paste. Add the chopped nions too. Add salt to taste.Mix both the mixtures. Heat Oil in a pan for deep frying. Shape it as desired and fry it in oil till they are nice crisp and brown.
