Sreedevi's Rice Kondattam

There are many foodie groups on facebook of which I am a part of.So my facebooking also involves checking out what people(sometimes friends,sometimes family too)are cooking in their kitchen and what experiment turned into disaster and which one tasted out of this world.
Sreedevi,a dear friend's wife is someone who clicks and posts everything she cooks in her kitchen on her facebook profile.She is a very pleasant and enthusiastic girl who replies within seconds when I ask her for a recipe and I love her for that.I've been telling her to start a blog of her own since she has such an array of dishes,but (it seems)she is content with her facebook album.

So I invited her to share her recipe for Easycooking readers and she readily obliged.She has prepared Rice Kondattam from scratch,something which even I have not attempted till date.Kudos to you Sreedevi!

Rice Kondattam

Raw rice/Pachari - 1 cup
Boiled rice/Puzhungalari - 1 1/4 cup
Salt - approximately 3 spoons
Green chilly - 3-4
Black sesame seeds - a handful


Soak the raw rice and boiled rice together for 4-5 hours.
Blend together everything except the sesame seeds to a smooth paste adding enough water.
Add 2 - 2 1/2 cups of water to the batter and mix well.
Cook this batter on medium flame stirring continuously till the batter starts turning thick.
Keep stirring till the batter attains a wobbly consistency-thicker than dosa-idli batter.Take care not to overcook after this stage which would make the odi/vadi dry.
Switch off and add the sesame seeds.Mix well.
To prepare the odi/vadis
Drop spoonfuls of batter on a plastic sheet or baking paper and dry in sunlight till the vadis get dried completely.Anywhere between 2-3 days depending on the weather.
Tip-Spread baking paper on a thick cardboard sheet so that it becomes easier to take the sheets in and out while drying.

Heat oil in a kadai and fry the odi/vadis till crisp.It takes less than a minute to fry up one batch.

Happy Cooking!
