Crispy rava/sooji balls

A very easy tea time snack made with rava/sooji.I make this with few extra ingredients+left over uppuma.Here is the recipe from the scratch...hope you all like it...


Rava - 1cup
Mixed cut veggies - 1/2 cup (i used frozen)
Onion- 1 chopped
Green chillies - 1 chopped
Ginger - 1 inch piece chopped
Garlic - 2 pods chopped
Garam masala powder - 1tsp
Lemon juice - 1tbsp
Curd- 2tbsp
Chilly powder - 1tsp

All purpose flour- 1/4 cup
Bread crumbs - as needed
Coriander leaves - as needed chopped
Boiled water -2 cups


Chop finely Onion,ginger,garlic, green chilly .If you are using frozen cut begetable, then in a microwave safe bowl, put the veggies and sprinkle some water and m/w for abt 1 min.In a pan heat 2tbsp oil, fry onion till they are brown.Then add green chilli,ginger,garlic and finally add the veggies.Fry for some time and then add salt,chilly powder and garam masala.Now add rava and fry till the raw smell goes.Now add 2 cups of boiling water.Be careful while adding water, it shouldn't be excess.Now add lemon juice and chopped coriander leaves.Mix well and switch off the stove.After the rava mix is cooled down, make into balls(i made some as round cutlets).Mix water and all purpose flour in a thin batter.this is for dipping the rava balls before rolling into the bread crumbs.Now take one ball at a time and dip it in the flour batter and then dip it in the bread crumbs.Place all the balls in a platter and deep fry them in oil till golden brown.Serve it with spicy tomato sauce.

I just threw some left-over upma i made 3 days back. That is the thing about upma, no one ever eats the left-overs. Now, I know what to do with it! Thanks for this recipe.
