For Day 3, Week 4 of BM #41, here is another Iron-rich kid friendly recipe. I have recently come to know from my dietitian friend that Lotus root is a very good source of Iron.
When I googled for kid friendly options using, Lotus root, the first few were various types of kebabs. Here is my take on these kebabs. My family and friends loved these and my older one was looking for more in the basket!
Lotus Root 250 gms (I used frozen)
Potato boiled and grated 1/2 cup
Onions, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Besan/Chick pea Flour 1/2 cup
Ginger, grated 1 tsp
Garlic, grated 1 tsp
Chaat Masala 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Green chillies as needed
Coriander leaves few
Oil for deep frying
Method Of Preparation -
Pressure cook the lotus root and after it is cooked well. Pulse it in a grinder to a coarse paste.
Mix the remaining ingredients and make a dough.
Heat oil for deep frying in wok/kadai.
Pinch small portions of the prepared dough and pat into small patties/vadas and gently slide them into the medium hot oil.
Add as many as can comfortably fit in the oil and resume the process multiple times.
Let them brown evenly and remove onto paper towels to drain excess oil.
Serve with Tamarind-Date Chutney or a simple ketchup is fine too.
