- 1 cup rice flour
- 1 ½ cups water
- 3 tblspns+¼ teaspoon of oil+ extra for oiling your palms

- 2 green chillies, crushed
- 1 teaspoon garlic paste+ dhania/ green coriander paste

- In a kadhai/wok add the sesame seed as and roast them till reddish. Set aside on a plate to cool.
- The rice flour will now be cooler. Remove it in a plate or bowl oil your hands and make small sticks or rolls of the flour.
- Once the sticks are made, in the kadhai/wok heat oil add the til/ sesame seeds, green chillies and the garlic and coriander paste.
- Stir when you get a nice aroma add ½ cup of water check seasonings and bring to a boil.
- Once the water starts boiling add the rice sticks, cover and boil for about 5 minutes.
- After about 5 minutes open the pan and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.
- Traditionally Fara is served garnished with dhania/coriander leaves but my girls garnished it with tamarind chutney. Me I enjoyed it with Bimbli Pickle.
