IMG_0186
Its raining these days at my place, and a rainy day calls for a quick snack. Had few bread slices, and thought of preparing baked bread rolls. I then rembered the bread vada recipe in I saw in sanjeevkapoor site, and wanted to try that. Since I preferred baking, I consider it as Tikki:-)

My Notes:
  • Instead of baking, can also deep fry in oil
  • Can add any veggies of your choice
  • Original recipe called for peanut powder. As I didn’t have peanut that day I used semolina
  • They taste best when served immediately. If its kept for a long time they tend to became rubbery

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.

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
