Hello Foodies,
          Hot summer days are here again, so tried to make this instant, easy and healthy rice kurdai with using exactly main 3 ingredients and they don’t take more than 40 minutes of your time and can be customized infinitely! For starters, like me let’s just see how to make a basic version of the kurdai, that you can flavor with your favorite color/spices, etc. I tried to make it with different food colors, and it came out very nice.

          In Maharashtrian families, these are prepared during the summer time, sun-dried and stored in every household and fried whenever there is a festival or whenever required. A Maharashtrian festival is incomplete without accompaniments such as kurdai, pickle and papad. Kurdai mainly made from wheat and it's a lengthy process, you need lots of patience and time to make these wheat Kurdai. But to make rice kurdai is so easy and needs fewer efforts. So this summer try to make this rice kurdai at home, as homemade is always better than store-bought.!!

Ingredients :

    prepare kurdai.
  5. Sundry the kurdai under a hot sun for about 2 days.
  6. You can store kurdai in an airtight container; these kurdai have a shelf life of about 1-2 years.
My Take :
  1. To make rice flour: first, soak 2 cups of rice in enough water for 3 days make to change the water every day. On 4th day
    drain the water and spread the rice on cloth and let it dry, then grind this rice to make a fine powder and finely strain it and rice flour is ready.
  2. You can make 25 kurdai from 2 cups of rice flour.

    Lovely - no hot sun here though! Possible to 'air dry' similar to merangue in a low oven? OR, can these be fried fresh? YAM xx
