Shitta Bojjo / Rice Fritters

This is the dish made by my mother out of left over cooked rice. These bojjo / fritters are extremely tender and crispy. Very simple with less ingredients and fast to make. Can have it as a snack with hot tea/coffee or as a starter.

NOTE :  
  • Number of green chilies depend on how spicy they are. I am using 4 as mine are not very spicy.
  • Don't add water to prevent it from absorbing excess oil.
  • Green Chilies can be replaced by red chilies.
  • Rice Fritters taste best when they are served hot.
  • Coriander leaves can also be added.
