Leftover Rice Appe

I just had a i/2 cup of rice leftover from previous nights dinner. What do I do with 1/2 cup rice? 
Well, just added a few things together and pulled out my appe/paniyaram pan and made these savory appes. Well, they were delicious and made a good snack with chai/tea


1/2 cup cooked rice
1 small onion - chopped fine
1/4 cup cilantro chopped
1/4 cup yogurt
1/4 cup besan/chick pea flour
2 tablespoons rice flour
1/4 teaspoon asafoetida/hing
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon dhania jeera powder
salt to taste
cooking spray like PAM


Mix the rice and yogurt along with the asafoetida, chilli powder, turmeric, dhania jeera powder, salt and mix well. Mash the rice with the back of the spoon. Let it stand for 15 minutes. To this add the chopped onion, chopped cilantro and the besan and the rice flour and mix well. Add salt to taste.
Heat on medium - high heat a non-stick paniyaram pan ( and spray it with oil. Add the batter one tablespoon in the pnaiyaram mold. After 5 minutes turn them carefully on the other side and let it cook for another 5 minutes. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or green mint chutney.
