Goru Chikkudu Kaya Snacks ~ Gawar Beans Vada!

Ok now that you know of one deep fried love with bitter gourd, I can as well talk about Goru chikkudu kaya or as we call it, Mattikaya. This wonderful way of making a vada, was an inspiration that Athamma had after seeing it somewhere. When I got back home, she was excited about this dish and was telling me for a while. Well she spent quite a lot of time talking about this, that I finally decided its time to make it. It was nice knowing that Peddu liked this, so I was glad he got to eat some veggies this way.

So I thought a snack alternating with soups will be a great thing, Every night when I have my soup, Konda will want to taste that and she says its so yummy mummy! I will tell her she can eat her dinner instead of trying to drink only soup and not skip her dinner. She gets very curious seeing the colour, then slowly sipping it, she says wow.Well that makes it all the more nice. And these vadas, we made using her toy mold that she had. We saved it for using it for shapes. So she was excited that these came out in good shape.

Ingredients Needed:

Cluster Beans - 1 cup
Onions - 1 medium
Besan - 3/4 cup
Rice Flour - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Green Chillies - 2
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves

Oil for Deep Frying

Method to prepare:

Trim the ends of the cluster beans and par boil it. Drain it over the sieve, so that excess water comes out.

Then in a bowl, take the chopped onions, ginger garlic paste, besan, salt, rice flour chilies along with squeezed out cluster beans.

Mix well, then add enough water to get a batter enough to drop in. The batter shouldn't be too thin.

Heat a Kadai with oil, shape as you like and gently drop them into hot oil and cook on both sides.

These make a lovely evening snacks for kids and also you can get them eat the vegetable, afterall its not a problem for the small ones to eat deep fried stuffs!
