Rice Vathal / Rice Crisp / Rice Fryums !!

Rice vathal is my favorite snack & side dish. In India, when summer gets start everyone busy to prepare rice vathal in home, share it with their neighbors & friends. It can store for more than a month. I made this rice vathal with leftover rice. It is best side dish with all varieties of rice. Sprinkle some chat masala on it & have it for snack. Best snack with guacamole.

Frying Vathal;

Keep the oil on medium flame, deep fry rice vathal & remove the excess oil using paper towel.

Serve & enjoy it !!


If didn’t get enough sunlight, keep it on room temperature for 2 – 3 days.

Once it get dried, it is easy to peel.

If don’t want to deep fry, microwave for 30 – 60 minutes & enjoy it.
