  • 5 to 6 tbsp water or as required

1. take the rice in a small bowl or pan. mash the rice with your hands or with a spoon. mashing the rice gives a soft texture to the pakoras. its always better to use rice which are cooked really well. if the rice appears dry after removing from fridge, then just sprinkle some water on it and microwave for a few minutes.
