Rice and Soya Granules in a Crispy Snacks

Weekend is the most awaited time for my family who look forward to something crisp to munch upon during the evenings. And I like to experiment with various food ingredients to come up with something new and exciting from the normal snack recipes I usually make. This one is yet another scrumptious treat from my kitchen for you.

(makes 10-12 pieces)
  • 2 cups of cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup of Soya granules
  • 1/2 cup of mashed potato/potato flakes
  • 1 green chilly
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp. Turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Red chilly powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Chaat masala/dry mango powder
  • 1 tbsp. fresh coriander leaves (shredded)
  • Water to soak the soya granules
  • Oil for deep frying

Method; Soak soya granules in water for about 10 minutes. Drain and squeeze the granules to remove excess water from it.
Boil and mash a small potato or use potato flakes as shown in the picture. Dice the green chilly finely.
Take a large vessel and add the cooked rice into it. Add all the ingredients except oil in the cooked rice. Mix and mash all the ingredients to make a soft dough from it.
Make small balls from the above dough, flatten them a bit and keep them in a plate.

Heat oil in a wok and add these balls in a batch of 2-3 into it. Deep fry till they turn golden brown in color.
Take out from the oil and keep them on a tissue paper. Serve these crispy snack of rice and soya granules with tomato sauce or any chutney of your choice.

  1. You can avoid the soya granules and make the snacks with just the potato and rice mix in it.
  2. Coat the balls in fresh bead crumbs before frying for much crispier crust.
