1 cup rice flour
1 teaspoon green chili, finely chopped or paste
1 teaspoon cumin, slightly rubbed with hands
1/2 teaspoon ajwain, slightly rubbed with hands
1 teaspoon salt or salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon soda bi carb or 1 teaspoon papad kharo
2 cups water
1 teaspoon oil
In a deep pan, add water, salt, cumin, ajwain and let it come to boil.
Now add chilies and soda bi carb (or papad khar if using).
Add rice flour and stir it continuously to avoid lumps.
Let it cook for 5 minutes.
Now transfer it into a plate.
Take oil in your palm and make balls out of it. ( in size you prefer)
Press it gently and make a hole in the middle of each ball with your finger.
Now cover all the balls in a soft- thin cotton cloth and steam them for 15-20 minutes on a low- medium heat.
Remove and serve hot.
You can eat khichu with salt, chili powder mixed with oil.
Or you can eat with methi masala ( pickle masala)
You can also make roll shape, small modak shape, cube shape or any shape of your choice.
If you are in a hurry than you can also have it without steaming. Just stop from the dotted line and cook for 10minutes instead of 5minutes.
