Left Over Rice Balls

There’s so much that we don’t know and we can learn. I am Gujarati but I never had this “rasawala bhat na muthiya”. I don’t know if I ever even heard of it. In Olden times, food was scarce and noting was ever wasted. People or women were very creative and they came up with all this wonderful dishes to use left overs and still make them tasty and appealing. I do think all those mixed vegetables, mix dals were to use left overs. Lot of things were sun dried to use in winter and they ended up in curries like vadi, papad. It worked for them and were able to feed hungry mouths.

Coming back to today’s world, most of us have everything available all the time. Vegetables, fruits can be transported around the world in few hrs. Point am trying to make is we need to see what works in today’s environment and what doesn’t instead of blinding following . Blind following doesn’t help us grow in our life. And also one ends up making life miserable not only for self but to people around them too.

Since I never had this curry , I made it. I wouldn’t consider this healthy or great by any means but good once in a while with the side of big salad or roasted vegetables. We need to eat more lightly cooked vegetables in today’s environment. Recipe is simple and I liked that balls are not fried.

  • Take left over rice and add some besan , cilantro leaves and spices , salt. Pour little oil. Mix everything well and Make balls and keep it aside.
  • Heat oil, do seasoning and pour water . Add spices . Let water boil.
  • Drop the balls and let it cook. Rice was already cooked so just besan needs to cook.
  • Add some whisked plain yogurt and boil few more mins.
  • Garnish with cilantro. Done !
  • It’s quick. Isn’t it?
  • I think you should be able to add some shredded carrot , chopped spinach into balls. Might need little more besan to bind.
  • Enjoy !
