Servings: 2


  • 3 cups Cooking oil (for frying)


  • 2 cups Cooked rice (preferably leftover)
  • 1 cup Gram flour or Besan
  • 1 cup Finely chopped onions, carrot, cabbage, capsicum (or any veggies of your choice or is available)
  • ½ cup Finely chopped coriander leaves


  • Turmeric powder, Chilli powder, Chaat masala, Salt, Pepper, Cumin powder (as per taste)


  • Take all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Veggies will release water when you press the ingredients while combining.
  • Add 1-2 spoons water if you are not adding cabbage to the batter for combining the ingredients.
  • Once everything is combined well and the batter forms into a soft dough, grease your hands and roll out the dough into equal sized small balls and keep aside.
  • In a frying pan, heat the oil and deep fry the balls till golden brown.
  • Serve with chilies and tomato ketchup along with hot cup of tea!


You can also shallow fry instead of deep frying by making fritters or thin cutlets instead of balls.
