Left Over Rice Parathas

Going green, PG&E rebates, recycling you heard it all. Here is something which can be done by recycling leftover rice.

Rice can be recycled three ways (may be more but i recall only three) add rice and veggies together to make fried rice , add milk and rice to make kheer or add flour and rice to make paratha.

Are you getting some ideas plz share yours ideas on how to use leftover rice

That looks delicious and interesting, i make parathas mashing the rice and blending it with the dough. Never used it a stuffing though.

Havent heard about this though the first 2 are something I do too!
Nice idea of incorporating rice n wheat together :)

One more idea for recycling rice is to mash the rice, add some salt, chopped onions and make them into small balls. Sun dry them for a day or 2 and then use them as vadagams (rice crackers)

Happy cooking :)
