Rice balls in sugar syrup

This recipe actually came as an idea, thinking of what I would do with the leftover idiappam / rice noodles flour and guess what?! it turned out to be a super duper hit among all, especially kids. Very very very simple recipe, yet yummy! This is how it goes..

Rice flour : 1/2 cup
Grated coconut :1/2 cup
Oil : to deep fry
Cardamom powder : a pinch if required
Sugar : 1 cup
Salt : 1/4 tspn
  • Add salt to rice flour and mix well. Boil 1 cup water and pour onto the rice flour and knead the dough until it gets completely wet n sticky. 
  • Put grated coconut to the dough and mix well with hand. 
  • Keep aside to cool and keep inside the fridge for the flour to get firm.
  • Now make tiny balls to the size of a white chick pea(vellakkadala) and keep aside.
  • Pour oil to a tawa and once its hot, put the rice balls in it and deep fry until they turn golden brown and remove n place them on a tissue paper. 
  • Make sugar syrup with a little water added to sugar along with cardamom powder, boil it by stirring continuously.
  • Pour the syrup to the bowl containing fried balls to the level that it cover all rice balls. 
  • Garnish with tiny slices of badam or pista and serve crisp. Store in fridge and use later in case there is anything left!
Note : You may even boil the water adding grated coconut and then add the rice flour mixed with salt and knead to make a smooth soft dough.
