Rice Flour Fryums / Vadaam / Odiyalu


Crunchy crunchy yummmm :)

Fryums are every kid's favorite. Oh thats too biased a statement, its rather everyone's favorite :) I am no exception. Especially the home made ones are absolutely yummy. I like the process of making it too. Eating few while they are half dried is the best part of making them at home :)

Summer has almost gone but do you think the sun isnt shining bright now?? Oh Chennai, its summer for you all year long. So its never late to make home made fryums. :)

How smart could I get with those words to make up the late posting of fryums :P I really really wonder how I missed to post this one. The pictures were left untouched in my spare memory card and my memory loss added to it. Anyways here it is for you all :)



Rice flour - 1 cup
Water - 5 cups
Green chillies - 3
Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp
Salt - for taste
Food color of your choice



Mix the rice flour in 1 cup of water.

Heat the remining 4 cups of water and when it starts to boil, simmer the stove and pour in the rice flour water mixture gradually and mix well. Cook over medium heat until it thickens and becomes semi transparent.

Don't make it too thick. Stop when it is in pouring consistency.

Grind green chillies coarsely and add it to the mixture along with food color, salt and asafoetida. Mix thoroughly.

Allow this to come to room temperature.

Now spread a plastic sheet in your terrace or wherever there is direct sun light. Drop 1 tsp of batter at a time to make small circles of 2 cms diameter. Do this until you complete the entire batter.

Let this get dried up the entire day for the next 2 days.

Note: Remove and keep them in dry place during nights and spread it under the sun next morning.


After 2 days of drying, peel them off the sheet and put them all in a plate and again dry them under the sun for a day or two. Once it is completely dry, store it in air tight containers and use.

Rice flour fryums are ready :)

Fry them in hot oil until it just puffs up. Remove and leave them on a paper towel for few mins before serving.

Enjoy the crispy crunchy home made rice flour fryums :)
