Here is what I do with my leftover Pesarattu batter – Fritters!
Sprinkle 3 tbsp rice flour per 1 cup of leftover batter and mix well. Add a pinch more salt and red chilli powder (optional) and stir together. This will make the batter thicker and help make crisp fritters.
Heat a large frying pan with around 2 inches of oil over medium heat to 350 F (don’t have a thermometer? this takes around 7-8 minutes usually).
Use a spoon and drop spoonfuls of batter into the oil. Fry on one side until golden brown(3-4 minutes) turn it over and cook over on the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
Transfer them to paper towels and let absorb any excess oil and serve warm.
It is crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside and makes a great snack with evening coffee or tea.
