Palakayalu (deep fried crispy spicy rice balls)

This one of my savory dishes that I have made for Diwali.....It's a typical Andhra and Tamilnadu Snack........

Ingredients:
2cups rice flour, 1/4tsp.red chilli powder, 4tbsp.curd, 2tsp.butter, salt to taste, oil for deep frying.
Seasoning:
2tsp.oil, 2 dry whole red chillies(roughly chopped), 2spring curry leaves, 1/2tsp.jeera, 1tsp.urad dal, a pinch of hing. In a pan heat oil, once it's hot add all the seasoning ingredients and fry till they start to spread the aroma and remove form the flame and keep it aside.
Method:
In a bowl add rice flour, red chilli powder, salt, curd, butter, the seasoning and by adding little water at a time, make a dough that is of chapathi dough consistency, pinch out small quantities of dough and roll them to small balls, and once you are done making the balls, heat oil in a pan, once it is hot, add these balls in the oil and fry them on medium heat until they are little dark brown in color.......These crispy rice balls are all time favorites for kids and grownups.
This is gooing to Priya's "Diwali 2009" contest and Purva's "Diwali Dhamaka"
