Rice Pakoras / Chawal Ke Bhajiyae - Chattisgarh Cuisine

     For this month's Ssshhh secretly cooking , we have to cook the dish from the State Chattishgarh . It is known as the rice bowl of India and has a rich tradition of food culture.Most of the traditional and tribal foods are made of rice , rice flour , curd and a variety of green leafy vegetables.
  I was paired with Priya Satheesh of Priya's Menu . She gave me Rice fl our and cumin seeds as my secret ingredients. I made this crunchy Rice pakoras with the secret ingredients. 

Requirements : 
2 cup rice flour 
1 onion 
1/2 cup curd 
1 tsp cumin seeds 
4 green chilli 
A handful of chopped coriander leaves
Water as required 
Salt to taste 
Oil for deep frying 

Method : 

Peel the skin and Chop the onion.
Chop green chillies or grind to fine paste .
Mix rice flour , salt , onion , cumin seeds , chopped coriander and green chillies together.
Add in the curd and mix well.
Sprinkle little water at a time and mix the batter to get the required consistency- usual pakora consistency.
Check the salt , if required add more.
Heat oil in a kadai and drop a spoonful of batter , fry in a medium flame till golden brown.
Serve hot rice pakoras with tea.
When served hot the pakoras are more crispier . If the pakoras are cold , it will be less crisp.But both tastes good.
