Utanki ~Rice Crisp Rolls


For this month's Indian Cooking Challenge we have to prepare Utanki , a rice crisp roll from Andhra Pradesh . This was really a tough challenge given by +Srivalli Jetti  for this month . The recipe was adapted from Divya's space and you can check her blog for stepwise instructions.. I tried three four times but didn't get the actual shape so finally clicked what I have made. Despite the shape the taste was awesome , it was so crispy and sweet , like a perfect munching delicacy for evening snack . So lest start the recipe . Yum


1 cup Rice flour
1/4 cup Sugar
1 cup Milk
Oil for frying


Take sugar, milk and rice flour in a bowl and mix till sugar melts. Keep it aside for 3 to 4 hours.
Grind this mixture in grinder for 20 to 25 minutes. Batter should be not too thin or thick.

Heat oil in a pan and dip the hand in to the batter, and move the hand in anti clock wise for 3 to 4 times. Take out your hand along with batter and make sure the strings formed out of your fingers are falling into oil while making the shape like a circle. Rotate the hand 3 to 4 times to form a thick layer of strings.

Let it fry for 2 minutes till the color changes to light brown.Turn into other side till color turns to light brown .

Remove the rice crispy roll from oil and place on paper to remove excess oil. Then immediately fold that in to a roll.

Enjoy !

Serve -4. Cooking time -30 minutes

Original recipe calls for 5 cup rice , 2 cup sugar and 2 cup milk but I halved the recipe and got 6 rice crisps.

Best regards,
