Sindhi Kachri is a sun dried snack recipe, prepared with rice flour or soaked rice, which is further deep fried. Sindhis’ love fried snacks kachri and khichas are very popular among sindhis. This recipe requires maximum amount of Sun’s heat, for perfect results minimum 4 days are required for proper drying of kachri, first 2 days are very important, entire look and taste depends on first 2 days sun drying. Kachri goes well with evening tea or any other meal course. I have tried to roast it in Microwave but instead of properly puffing up it get burnt hence not suggesting you to prepare it for microwave. Its’ natural design and look comes perfect when it is deep fried. In this recipe I have used rice flour you can prepared it with soaked rice too. Ingredients required and detailed instructions for this recipe are as follows :
Rice flour: 2 cups(300gms approx)
Water – 5glasses
Salt –to taste
Sodium bicarbonate or baking soda-2 teaspoon
Alum or phitkari- 2 pinches
Cumin seeds: 1 teaspoon
Instructions: In a big bowl take 2 glasses of water, take a flour strainer, pour rice flour over it, strain it in a bowl with 2 glasses of water and with the help of skimmer or spatula continuously mix the flour with water, you can see the consistency of mixture in a picture. If required you can add ½ glass extra water.(it depends upon the quality of rice flour how much water it soaks).
After proper drying kachris will look like this:
If you are preparing it with rice, wash and soak rice early in a morning, in evening change the water, grind it on next day, keep it for at least 2 hours then do the remaining process.
If preparing for the first time try it with only 1 cup of rice flour.
