Leftover pongal vadai- gluten free fritters

leftover pongal
In most Indian homes kichadi, in some form or other features on the menu. Usually, there is not much fuss over the Pongal at my place except if it is for breakfast. They only like it on cold winter nights for dinner. Easy peasy one pot solution of a warm comforting balanced meal for me too.  So it frequents the crazy weekdays. 

Here is how to make a perfect Pongal

Once the meal is done the leftover Pongal haunts me…Most of us end up with about a cup or two of Pongal or Kichdi leftover. By then it is gone cold and kind of solidified. This is a lump even I hate. As all the leftovers end up on the mommy’s plate. I too dislike it. This prompted me to the inevitable.
Had to find a way too recycle this back and not make this hideous lump occupy my plate, for I can’t take another bite of this cold sticky leftover Pongal.
On the other hand, there is total comfort in anything fried. So the experiment triggered off.

This vada will work when the leftover Pongal or kichadi is solid than more of the pouring out consistency.  Making these sized crispy vadas turned out a good experiment. Its become sought out now for its gooey centre and crispy exterior…yumm.

Dunk them in the delicious green chutney (click here for the recipe) and enjoy a leftover made awesomely.
Wait no more for this delicious recipe and clear out all that cold Pongal in a delicious snack version. Serve them with Salad or on Arisikaruvadam cups.
I am very sure you have some Pongal left this new year season, so don’t miss to try it.
