Cooking time - 30 Minutes
Preperation time- 20 Minutes
- Bread slices - 3
- Grated carrots - ½ cup
- Potatoes boiled and mashed - ½ cup
- Onions finely chopped - 1 cup
- Green chillies chopped - 2 tsp
- Chopped mint leaves - a handful
- Chopped coriander leaves - a handful
- Garam masala - 1 tsp
- Salt - as per taste
- Cumin powder - ½ tsp
- Rice flour - 2 tbsp
- Water - 1 cup
- Oil - for frying
- Take a large mixing bowl. Tear up pieces of the bread slices roughly and add them to the bowl.
- Add the grated carrots, mashed potatoes, chopped onions and green chillies.
- Use your hands and mix the content of the bowl well.
- Now, add the masalas. Add the garam masala powder and the cumin powder.
- Add salt according to your taste and preference.
- Mix the content of the bowl well for a couple of minutes. Check if there is enough moisture in the bread mixture, so that it can be kneaded. If the vegetables contain enough moisture, then you may not have to add more water. If not, drizzle some water little by little. Knead the mixture and keep adding water only if required.
- Now, add rice flour into the same bowl. Start kneading the content until it forms a soft dough.
- Divide the dough into 8 to 9 portions. Roll each portion into a ball and use your greased hands to flatten the balls into the shape of a vada.
- Be sure to make the vadas flat or the insides may remain uncooked.
- Take a deep frying pan and fill it with oil.
- When the oil becomes hot, reduce the flame and drop the vadas into it one by one. Do not over-crowd the frying pan. To get crispy mixed vegetable vadas, you should only fry two or three vadas at a time, depending on the size of the frying pan.
- Fry the vada for a couple of minutes and then turn it over to let the other side cook properly.
- Keep turning them over often to make sure that the vadas do not burn.
- Fry until the vadas are golden brown.
- When they turn golden brown, remove them on to a kitchen towel to drain any excess oil.
- The vadas should be crispy by now.
Serve these crispy mixed vegetable vadas, when hot, with garlic tomato chutney, green mint and chilli chutney or tomato ketchup.
