Mutta Sirka

Mutta Sirka is a traditional Malabar item which can be served with any non-veg curry. The batter is made with very few ingredients, which involves mainly rice (both raw and cooked) which is then deep fried until nicely puffed up and crisp.

  • Add salt and mix well.
  • Add oil in a pan. Pour a ladle full of the batter into the hot oil.
  • Let the mutta sirka cook well in the oil. Pour hot oil on top the mutta sirka and move it slightly. You will see that it puffs up really well.
  • Flip it and cook on the other side too for a minute. Take it out and place on an absorbent tissue.
  • Serve with curry.
