Crispy Rice Fritters

P1020694
Hi.
As I have mentioned earlier also several times that I am a weirdo in a sense that I always cook better when I cook in anger (this is S’s theory) but another theory that I am coming up for myself is  that the best of the recipes that I concoct are always in a hurry and that too with few ingredients. A good example that comes first to my mind, just to prove you guys about my theory is the Instant Bread Dosa.
The school has advanced the school timings, it starts early and gets over by noon. So my kid has to leave by 6:30 in the morning and for that I have to get up by 5:30 am and finish cooking by 6:15 am. So one can see I must wake up with a good planning. Normally I decide at night what I want to make in the morning and finish a bit of chopping so that I have a hassle free morning.
But yesterday I slept clueless what I would make in the morning, so when I entered the kitchen I was a bit worried as I woke up a little late and I was clueless what to make. My quick savior at such times are the cheese slices and bread but today I did not have them. Sleepily I opened the fridge and checked what was available. I had some rice left over from the night meal and I had some chopped onions and grated cabbage. Instantly I had a fairly good idea what I wanted to make….Do read the recipe as it surely is a tasty savior when in hurry and good way to finish the left over rice as I finished cooking them in 15 minutes. So I can call this the Quick Best Out of Waste Fritters. One can also try the Rice and Roti Cutlet which I have posted earlier in case they also have rotis in hand.
I liked these fritters so much that I made one batch for myself later in the day and then managed to take these clicks. Yes, I had made fried stuff all for myself and I was mighty pleased as I rarely indulge in fried food, just loved every bite smile_tongue. This recipe is a base and one can use their choice of veggies and spices that they have in store and make these fritters. For a continental touch, one can  surely add oregano, celery as the herbs.

Ingredients
a cup of cooked rice
an egg
2 finely chopped green chilies
3 tbsp chopped onions
3 tbsp grated cabbage
2 tbsp chopped carrot
2-3 tbsp chopped cilantro
2-3 tbsp gram flour/ besan
1 tsp cumin pwd
1/2 tsp chili pwd
salt to taste
oil for deep frying
Method
In a bowl take the cooked rice and crush it lightly with fingers. Mix in the ingredients one by one and make a batter mix. The egg and gram flour helps to shape and bind  in the batter and enhances the crispiness too. Even if you do not have many veggies, only an onion or any other vegetable can be used and the fritters still taste good.Thumbs-up
food3-4
Make small fritters and deep fry them on a medium flame. Remove them on a kitchen towel to get rid of the excess oil. Serve with tomato sauce.

These can be a good starter or finger food and I surely found a good snack for the kid's lunch box. So tell me friends what is your opinion about my theory?

The fritters sure are very tempting.
You know what Pari,I do understand your theory because I am like you too.
When I am angry or weak I tend to work more productively or cook more delicious dishes without my knowledge(maybe I do that because I don't want others to think I am dependent on them).
