Patties from leftover Khichdi/વધેલી ખીચડીના મૂઠિયા

This dish is the best example of how something tasty can be created from leftover dish. Whenever my mom would make khichdi, the next day morning she would make these મૂઠિયા as a side dish for lunch. And she literally had to hide them from me and my brother otherwise we would finish them before lunch time. When I was working in Mumbai, when all roommates were tired, khichdi would be our dinner menu. And then I started making these for next day breakfast and my roomies loved them. Instead of મૂઠિયા , this time I shaped them as small patties to reduce cooking time and bring crispier texture.

Make 25-30 small patties
Preparation Time: 10 Minute
Cooking Time: 20 Minute

1 cup leftover khichdi
½ cup coarse wheat flour *
¼ cup Handvo/Dhokla flour **
¼ tsp turmeric powder
¼ tsp red chili powder
¼ tsp ginger paste
¼ tsp chili paste
1 tsp yogurt
½ tsp oil
½ tsp mustard seeds
½ tsp fenugreek seeds
Oil for shallow frying

* Flour used to make શીરો/લાપસી. If you do not have this one, use ભાખરીનો લોટ
** This can be substituted with coarse wheat flour.

1. Mix both flours and sieve with oil
2. Mix khichdi with the flour and add turmeric powder, chili powder, ginger-chili paste, salt and yogurt
3. Mix well and form soft dough
4. Do not add water. If required, wet your palms to knead the dough
5. Divide dough into small balls and shape each ball like a Pattie. If mixture sticks to your hand apply little oil on your palms
6. Heat oil in skillet. Add fenugreek seeds and mustard seed. Add patties and cook them on both sides until golden brown
