One of the best avartars of leftover rice is Rice Thepla...which is similar to Adai...Have done this long back, but the credit for pulling this back to my memories goes to one of those south indian cooking shows "samayal samayal" which was telecasted in Vijay TV. Thanx to 'em...n time to move on with the recipe :)

- Besan flour - 1 tbsp
- Wheat flour - 1 .5 tbsp
- Finely chopped ginger - 1 tsp
- Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
- Salt - as req
- Turmeric pdr - a pinch
- Green chilli - finely chopped 1
- Coriander leaves - finely chopped
- Oil - 1 tbsp
To the leftover rice, add the below ingredients : 1 tbsp besan flour, 1.5 tbsps of wheat flour, finely chopped green chilli, finely grated ginger, turmeric pdr a pinch, salt as req, corriander leaves finely chopped, cumin seeds - 1 tsp, oil - 1tbsp. Mix all the above with the rice well. Add water to make it to a soft dough. On the tava, put a ball of the rice and then spread it from the center towards the sides using ur hands...yeah, u can juz spread it with ur hands...Pour oil to the sides of the thepla. Flip the side once it turns a lil brown. Cook the second side too. Your Crunchy Rice Thepla is ready to be served with some nice chutney.
