Coconut is an integral part of most Udupi recipes . The very reason for this is the abundance of coconuts in the coastal region:)

Today I present to you a recipe from the Coastal Karnataka cuisine – Rice N’ Coconut fritters / Kaayi Vade:)

Raw Rice (Sona masoori or Idli rice) – 1 cup

Shredded coconut (Fresh or frozen) – 1/2 cup

Puffed Rice / Murmura – 1 cup

Jeera / cumin seeds – 1 tsp

Green Chillies – 3

Salt – as per taste

Rice flour – 2 tbsp

Oil for deep frying

Method:

METHOD:

Soak the raw rice with enough water for about an hour.

Drain the rice and grind it together with coconut, puffed rice, green chillies, cumin seeds and salt.

Add just a little water while grinding. Making sure not to make the mix watery.

After grinding, add the rice flour to the ground mixture and mix well.

Heat oil in a deep bottomed frying pan. And on a plastic sheet, smear some oil and take a small ball of the ground mixture. Pat it gently to a round puris similar to the size of pani puris but a tad bit thicker, using just couple of your fingers.

Once the oil is heated, fry these fritters till golden brown.

Serve hot with some hot cup of tea:)
