Akki Kare(Rice with cucumber savory)
Tulasi Pooja is coming...I thought of doing some savory this time...Anyways sweet will be prepared on the day of pooja..So here is my rice savory recipe..which is purely learned by mom and preparing it for the for the first time..I hope all will like it...My family liked it very much.
Rice 2 cup
White cucumber 1 grated
Oil for deep frying
Soak the rice in water 1-2hours. Drains out the water from the rice and transfer to a blender.half blend it,now skins of the cucumber and also remove the seeds and make small small pieces add in the blender.Blend them together and make smooth batter(cucumber itself is having more water so add water only if needed),pour the batter in to a heavy bottom pan,add salt,stir and keep it on the gas stove.
Turn on the heat(medium flame),keep on stir the batter nicely until this become like dough(it will absorb the water contents and will become dry)then turn of the heat and let it become cool.
Once it is cool ,apply oil(cooking oil or coconut oil)on your palm and knead it to make soft dough.
Make big big balls and fill in the savoury press(use the same chakkuli press and use the plate shown below).
Heat oil in frying pan.Either you can press the dough directly in to the oil(once the oil id hot) or press it in a plate and then transfer carefully in to the frying pan(in to hot oil).But while doing like this you should be very very care full,otherwise you will end with burning your hands. So be care full whichever method you use.
Then cook it both the side till it turns to light brown(it will take some 5-10 to cook properly).once done, take out from oil and keep on kitchen tissue.....
Once the oil has been absorbed, break them and serve with a cup of tea...
once it is cool store in air tight container.Can be kept more then a month...
I am sending this recipe to.. Tasty Bites
