Bhaat Na Poodla ( Gujarati Recipe) recipe with step by step photos
Leftovers can actually be a boon for those of us who do not have enough time to prepare much in the morning. You can cook a delicious breakfast like Bhaat na Poodla (Rice Pudla), within minutes! Here are more recipes using leftovers that you can make quickly when in haste:
For making Bhaat na Poodla, in a deep bowl, take cooked rice.
Mash them using your fingers or the back of a spoon/fork. If you are using refrigerated rice and they are not soft, then sprinkle little water and microwave them for a minute.
To this, add whole wheat flour.
Now add besan. Besan or gram flour acts as a binding agent, bringing together all the ingredients easily for making Bhaat na Poodla.
Now add turmeric powder and asafetida. Hing prevents the formation of intestinal gas and also cures digestive malfunctioning.
Also, add chilli powder. You can completely skip adding red chilli powder as we will also be adding finely chopped green chillies.
Add curd in the same bowl. They help in making the Bhaat na Poodla soft.
Add finely chopped coriander. With an addition of finely chopped colorful vegetables(onions,capsicum, cabbage, carrots) you can fortify the Bhaat na Poodla batter.
Add green chillies. If you are making this for kids then avoid adding chopped chillies and just add the red chilli powder.
Add the sugar. Sugar will help in balancing the sourness from curd.
Add the salt. Some people add salt while cooking rice so, be careful while adding the salt to the Bhaat na Poodla batter.
Add the oil. This will soften and smoothen the texture of your Bhaat na Poodla.
Using approx. ¾ cup of water, make the rice pancake batter. Mix well to form a thick pouring consistency batter.
Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it using little oil.
Pour a ladleful of the batter on it. Press gently with the help of the back of the spoon and spread to make a 100 mm. (4") diameter circle.
Pour little oil on the Bhaat na Poodla.
Cook till both sides turn golden brown in colour. If you are not making the Bhaat na Pudla (Rice Pudla) immediately after making the batter, the rice might absorb the water so, when you start making later, add water to adjust the consistency accordingly.
Repeat steps 12 to 16 to make 9 more Rice Pudla.
Serve the Bhaat na Poodla hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
