Neypathal is both a breakfast dish and a dinner item. It resembles a deep fried pancake or a puri and is usually eaten with a mutton or chicken curry.
|Grated Coconut||1 cup|
Blend one cup of soaked rice, diced onion or shallots as per need, grated coconut, anise seeds, sesame seeds and salt until it forms a dough. Divide the dough into small balls.
Pour oil into a heated pan, roll and flatten the rice balls and fry them in oil. Fry until the neypathal turns a golden brown colour. Serve hot for a delicious snack or with a curry for dinner.
