Rice Flakes Stir Fry – Gluten Free

This makes a healthy evening snack…

Rice flakes or flattened rice can be used for making snacks and is very popular in India. Many kinds of snacks can be prepared using rice flakes, the simplest one is made by wetting rice flakes with water which is then combined with coconut, banana and jaggery. Another variation is rice flakes stir fry, which is made by combining the rice flakes with veggies or nuts and seasoned with some spices. Some people even have this for breakfast instead of cereal, when mixed with milk or water it will absorb the liquid and becomes soft and can be eaten after seasoning with sugar. Since it’s easily digestible, even kids can have it. The other day, I made this veggie rice flakes stir fry. I added mixed veggies and seasoned the rice flakes with some spices. I wanted to retain the crispiness of the rice flakes so I didn’t add too much water while stir frying it. It turned out to be a healthy delicious evening snack.
