Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a blender, grind soaked rice, grated coconut, almond and cashew nuts into a coarse paste.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground rice, butter and sugar; mix well.
  3. Add vanilla extract and salt; incorporate well.
  4. Start adding milk gradually to the rice-butter mixture, constantly stirring.
  5. The end result should yield a batter with consistency similar to that for pancakes.
  6. Heat oil.
  7. Pour some of the batter into a baking pipe.
  8. Pipe out the mixture into oil so that you have created an enclosed circle.
  9. Allow frying until the oil side of Selroti is golden brown; turn over on the other side.
  10. Remove from oil once both sides are cooked to golden brown and crispy.
  11. Place on a sheet of paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  12. Continue frying until all the batter is finished.
  13. To serve, place two Selrotis on a plate; dust them with powdered sugar.
