Rice Pakora Recipe

Rice Pakora Recipe is one of the most easiest and fast cooking recipe.  My Bhabi often cook these for her kids specially when they get hungry from nowhere and want fast snack. The best thing about Rice Fitters / Rice Pakora is that they can be made from left over rice and they taste very crispy and good.  You can also make them with or without red chilli powder to adjust the spice.  They also taste good with drinks and are also served in wedding receptions and parties.

The only negative thing about Rice Fritters is that they can not be kept for long time and must be served immediately because they don’t taste good after some time.  Rice fritters  taste best with green coriander chutney, tomato ketchup or even with mayonnaise.
