  • 1 cup Rice Cooked or leftover rice
  • 1 Onion medium (chopped finely)
  • 2 Green Chillies
  • 1 inch Ginger adrak (grated or chopped finely)
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin powder
  • 4 tbsp Besan
  • 1 pinch asafoetida
  • 2 tbsp Coriander Chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Chaat masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying



  • Mash the cooked rice thoroughly by hand. Take a mixing bowl. Add the mashed rice, onion besan, green chilies, coriander powder, cumin powder, chaat masala, grated ginger, asafetida, coriander leaves and salt and mix well.
  • Set aside for 10-15 minutes. If the mixture is too dry, add 2-3 tablespoons of water as required to make the mixture little soft and mix well.
  • Heat oil in a deep bottomed pan on a medium flame. Once the oil becomes hot, slide the mixture gently with your hand or with the help of a spoon.
  • Deep fry the pakoras till light brown and crunchy. Remove them in an absorbent towel or tissue paper to remove excess oil.
  • Serve rice pakoras hot with tomato sauce or any chutney of your choice. NOTES : You can add red chili powder instead of green chilies. Mashing the rice helps to get soft pakoras.
