  • 2 cup Khoi or Popped Rice
  • 1 cup coconut freshly grated
  • 2-3 green chilies finely chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp rice flour
  • salt to taste
  • oil for frying


  • Take the khoi in a bowl. Add the chopped green chilies, freshly grated coconut and the rice flour. Mix well.
  • Splash water to the khoi, in little increments, and try to mash the mix with your fingers till it is just sticky enough to form a soft dough ball as shown in the picture.
  • Heat oil and deep fry the khoi dough balls till they are a gorgeous golden. Keep on a kitchen absorbent towel to soak the extra oil.
  • Serve hot with kasundi.
