Mor kali

This is one of my favorites. My mom and paati make this for evening tiffin during school / college days. It is very easy and simple evening snack.
Rice flour batter – 1 1/2 cup ( or use ready made Rice flour )
Buttermilk – 1 cup
salt – as per taste
Oil –  5 to 6 tsp
Asafoetida – 3/4 tsp
Mustard – 1 tsp
urad dhal – 1 tsp
Mor milagai ( or red chillies ) – 4 to 5
1. Mix Rice flour batter or rice flour with buttermilk and salt. The mixture should be very thin, you can also add water to make the mixture thin.
2. Add oil and fry the mor milagai till it becomes black and keep aside.
3. Add oil in kadai , Add mustard seeds , urad dhal , Asafoetida , curry leaves. then add red chillies or fried mor milagai.
4. Add the mixture in kadai now and keep stirring. Add oil again and keep stirring for 10- 15 mins.
5. Soak your hand in cold water and touch the mixture. if it does not stick to your hand , then it means the right consistency.
6. Grease the plate with little oil and pour the mixture and flatten it. Allow it to cool
7. Cut into desired shape and serve it.
I used Idly rice batter for this recipe . When making idly batter , soak additional rice for making this recipe , Grind it and take 1 1/2 cup of batter and save it in refrigerator  or use ready  made rice flour.
I felt this recipe tasted very good using rice batter when compared to regular rice flour we get in US.
