As I was talking in the earlier post now I am posting arisi koozh vadam. It is very easy to make, even the beginners can try little quantity and try how it comes. It will dry early and this can be tried even on cloudy days. Try this and share your feed back with me.
- Raw rice flour – 1 cup
- Javvarisi flour – ¼ cup
- Water – 2 cup
- Greenchilli paste – 1 tsp
- Salt – ½ tsp
- Cumin powder – ¾ tsp
- Asafoetida – ¼ tsp
Mix rice flour and javvarisi(sago) flour in a heavy bottomed vessel. Add water and make a smooth batter without lumps.
Add green chilli paste, cumin powder, asafetida and salt in the batter and stir well.
Cook slowly with continuous stirring. When rice koozh becomes shiny and does not stick on the finger, switch off the stove.
Keep aside to cool. Make equal size balls. Fill it in the murukku press.
Squeeze it in the cloth or plastic sheet. Dry in the hot sun. After a day sprinkle water on the reverse side of the cloth and peel.
Cut into required size and put it in the plate and dry for another two days. Then store in the air tight container for about a year or two. Heat little oil in a pan and fry vadams. Serve with rice or any variety rice.
Adding Javvarisi flour gives extra crispness to the vadam.
You can grind the rice and make the vadam also.
If you want you can add red chilli powder instead of green chilli paste.
You can use cumin powder or else it will block the flow.
