This week’s wonderful theme was suggested by my fellow blogger Poonam who is an amazing blogger and blogs at https://poonambachhav.blogspot.com/ . Do check her blog for some recipes. My humble contribution for 189th #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme #CarrotkaJalwa is Carrot vada.
Now coming back to the recipe.I wanted to try something different and delicious at the same time. As I saw the flaxseed meal in my pantry , this carrot vada idea stuck me. It was so delicious and was wiped off in a jiffy.
Recipe for Carrot Vada / Carrot Fritters:
2 Cups Grated Carrot
1.5 Cup Rice Flour
3/4 Cup Flaxseed meal
1Tsp grated Ginger
2 Green Chillies finely chopped
1/4 Tsp Asafoetida
1/4 Red Chilli Powder
Salt to Taste
1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Fresh Coriander
1/2 Tsp Jeera
1/4 Cup Water
Oil for Shallow frying
Take a wide bottom bowl. Add grated carrots, rice flour, flaxseed meal ,grated ginger,red chilli powder, asafoetida ,freshly chopped coriander,salt and green chillies. Mix all the ingredients well. Add water slowly to get a nice soft dough. Allow the dough to rest for 10 mins.
Take small portions and shape it in round flat vada. Heat oil in a wok. Once the oil is hot shallow fry the vadas. Remove from the wok once both sides are cooked. Serve hot with any Red Chutney / Green Chutney /Ketchup or Chiili Sauce.
This is good for your kids lunch or snack box. Fussy eaters will fall in love with this vada.
