             Another interesting snack recipe from Chettinad Cuisine.Some of you may not be knowing about chettinad n its famous to know more about the term Chettinad..just click here  :-)This snack is so easy to prepare n very yummy crispy snack perfect with khara chutney or any spicy sauces.This is a deep fried snack once a while can enjoy such yummy snacks which suits perfect for this monsoon weather along with a cup of hot tea/coffee.I am not so familiar of chettinad recipes but like some of those hot hot delcious chicken recipes tried from other blogs n websites.The actual recipe of masala cheeyam involves seasoning of onion n other ingredients but i tried without seasoning like we do for other vada came out good n we enjoyed with chilli garlic tomato sauce.So, here u go..

  1. Raw rice   1 cup
  2. Par boiled rice   3 tbsp
  3. Urad dal   1/2 cup
  4. Sago/Javarisi    1 tbsp
  5. Onion    1 medium(finely chopped)
  6. Ginger   2" piece(finely chopped)
  7. green chillies   3-4 no.s(finely chopped)
  8. Coconut    2 tbsp(small pieces or shredded)
  9. Curry leaves    few(finely chopped)
  10. coriander leaves    3 tbsp(finely chopped)
  11. Salt     to taste
  12. Oil    for deep frying.

  • Soak rice ,dal n sago together for 1-2 hours and grind to little thick batter(like idly batter).
  • Then transfer the batter to a bowl and add all other finely chopped ingredients,salt n mix all together.
  • Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying,when it gets hot just drop lil' batter using hand or spoon and fry till turns crisp n golden brown.
  • Once done remove from the oil ,drain it in paper towel and serve hot with any spicy chutney/sauce. Enjoy hot :)

If you don't have par boiled rice just add 3/4 cup urad dal n other ingredients as such n try .
You can also add mustard,urad dal seasoning to the batter n deep fry them.
