Baked Rice Cracker


Yesterday being a weekend evening, felt like having some quick snack. I fist thought of doing Baked Besan Bonda/ Baked Onion Pakoda, but I didn’t have enough Besan flour. I also didn’t have enough patience to soak and do anything. Suddenly I noticed I had some leftover rice.  One of my friends had once told me that her mom makes Vathal (Fryums) with leftover rice. My mom prepares Vadam with rice flour and tapioca sago, dries them in sun for 2 days and it is deep fried in oil. OMG, I love it.  I wanted to try something similar to my friend’s mom version.  I won’t say it was as crispy as fried version, but soft and a bit chewy snack.

Baked Rice Cracker

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 20 – 25 mins

Recipe Category: Snack


Cooked Rice – 1 cup (I used Brown rice, any rice can be used)

Lemon juice – 1 tbsp

Coriander powder – 1/4 tsp

Garlic Powder – 1/8 esp

Salt – as needed

Oil/ Cooking spray – to grease (I used cooking spray )



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. Place baking paper on baking tray and grease it
  • Add cooked rice, lemon juice, garlic powder, coriander powder and salt, and Combine well



  • Add water if required and make a dough. Make some balls (Marble size). Gently press them to flat thin circles ( around1/8 inch approximately)
  • Bake them for 20 – 25 minutes, turning sides



My Notes:

  • Try to make small flat crackers, else the edges will dry out while the centers remain too moist
  • Instead of garlic powder, you can add chilli powder, onion powder, cumin powder etc.
  • Can make the dough flat and cut with cookie cutter
  • Over cooking may tend to dry out the rice completely

    This is so cool! I always feel like rice crackers are something people buy instead of make. You really took the fright out of it!

    that it’s really so simple blows my mind. Why do people buy packaged food when it’s easy to make your own snacks, etc?

      Thanks Apsara:-) I has second thoughts before trying with brown rice because in India they do with white rice right. Happy that it worked with brown rice too
