Veggie Pops!!

Crunchy Scrumptious Flavourful with the goodness of vegetables, these pops are great starter and hit among all age group.



Last year while finalising the menu for my son's birthday party I found this veggie pops recipe by Vah Chef. The description and demonstration was done so nicely, I tried these pops with little variations in the ingredients, and they came out super yummy!!!! 


Here is the list of ingredients used


Ingredients:
  • 1/2 bowl finely chopped veggies of your choice (I used beetroot, beans,capsicum, peas and corn)
  • Mint leaves 15-20
  • Coriander leaves few
  • Mixed herbs( oregano basil thyme) 1/2 tbsp
  • Salt as per taste
  • Black pepper
  • Semolina 1/2 bowl
  • 1 bowl water
  • Oats for binding
  • Maida 1/4 bowl
  • Oats flour 3 tbsp
  • Bread crumbs 2-3 tbsp.
Method:
  • In a wok take a tbsp of oil.
  • Cook veggies, for a min, add mixed herbs, mint leaves, coriander leaves, salt and pepper.
  • Add semolina and water. Cover and cook till water is absorbed by semolina. Add oats for binding. Divide into equal portions and roll into balls.
  • Mix All purpose flour bread crumbs, oats flour and salt as per taste. Coat the balls in this.
  • Take a big strainer put the coated balls in it
  • Dip it in hot boiling water just for few seconds
  • Coat again with All purpose flour and repeat this process thrice ( this gives extra crunch).
  • After dipping third time coat only with bread crumbs
