Brown Rice Pakodas

Rice plays such an essential role in an Indian household. Sometimes, we end up making more than we truly need and this food ends up in the bin. Next time you have leftover rice at home, make these instead. Rice and vegetables are simply dropped into hot oil and deep-fried. Your tea-time snack is taken care of.
