If you cannot live without these starchy healthy vegetables and if you are looking for more options to eat potatoes, this recipe(Mini Potato Oat) is a must try. I love potatoes in any form and in any dish and can have it any time of the day 🙂
Did you know that there are many good reasons to add potatoes to our diet?? They are the incredible source of energy, packed with vitamins and minerals and the best part is it is available easily all over the world.
Ingredient for mini potato oat:
- Boiled potatoes: 2
- Chopped onions: 1/2
- Chopped coriander leaves: 1 table spoon.
- Oats: I used one small pack of Saffola Masala Oats ( You can use whatever you like)
- Rice flour if required.
- Oil for frying.
- Aamchur: 1 tea spoon.
- Salt as required
- Jeera/cumin powder: 1 tea spoon.
- Red chilli powder: 1 tea spoon.
- Brown bread crumbs: 1/2 cup
- Italina seasoning: 1 tea spoon.
- Red chilli flakes: 1 tea spoon.
- All purpose flour maida: 2 tea spoons
- Water: 3 spoons.
Method Of Preparation:
- In a wide container take boiled potato, onions, chopped coriander leaves and mix well into a soft dough.
- Add the spices, oats and mix well together until all the ingredients are blended well.
- If you feel the dough is not firm enough, sprinkle some rice flour and mix well
- Take the bread crumbs in a wide plate, add Italian seasoning, chilli flakes and mix well.
- Take maida into a small bowl, add the water and mix well.
- Grease your hands with few drops of oil.
- Make small balls out of the dough, make smooth and crack free balls.
- Keep the balls aside.
- Once you are done with making these balls, dip them gently into the maida/enriched flour and water mixture.
- Roll each ball into bread crumbs, press them gently between your palms so that the bread crumbs stick well to these balls. That gives a crunchy outer texture after you fry them.
- I have used the Appe pan or the Paniyaram pan method to fry these but you can deep fry them too.
- Fry them until crisp and golden in color with a toothpick inserted and serve hot with your choice of dip. Enjoy!
