Vegetable Eggs

Vegetable eggs6

Vegetable Eggs????!!!!!! Yes, don't they sound and look interesting?! :)

Vegetables are very essential intake in everyday food. But I am sure you would agree that its hard to make kids eat them. All you can do is to make something interesting out of them and give it a very attractive name as well, so that the kids would be excited to eat them :)

That is exactly how vegetable eggs impressed me when I was a kid and till date it has been the same. ;)

Crispy bread covering a hot and tangy filling along with tomato ketchup can make your evening a yummylicious one for sure :)

Ingredients:

Bread slices

Potatoes - 3 large
Carrots - 2
Onions - 2
Peas - 1 cup
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Aamchur powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 2 tsp
Chilly powder - for taste
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt - for taste
Coriander leaves

Vegetable Eggs4

Method:

Cook the potatoes, peas and chopped carrots. Dice onions finely.

Add few tsps of oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds, once it splutters add the diced onions and saute till it turns golden brown. Mash the cooked potatoes and put then into the pan along with other cooked vegetables. Add salt, garam masala, chilly powder, turmeric powder and aamchur powder to it and mix well till every thing blends. Finally add the finely chopped coriander leaves too.

The stuffing is done. :)

Roll out small balls of the stuffing and keep it aside. Take a slice of bread and cut away all the four ends.

Take a bowl of water and dip the bread in it and immediately remove it and press it between your palms to remove excess water. Now place a ball of the filling in the center of the bread and cover it nicely. Now fry these balls in oil till they turn golden brown.

Crispy and yummy vegetable bread eggs are ready to eat :)

Serve it hot with tomato ketchup. A perfect match for a lovely evening snack.

The above quantity would make 20 small sized vegetable eggs :)

Enjoy making and happy eating :)

Note:

Use ginger garlic paste if you like the flavor.
You can also replace aamchur with lemon extract.
You can use cauliflower or cabbage instead of potatoes and also use beans, beets etc too. The filling is left to your creativity. :)

Decoration: Used peni(the Karnataka based sweet base) to make the nest. ;)

those look really yummy. are they hard to fry? i imagine you need a lot of oil, and i'm not a big fan of deep frying at home.
