No need of any grains to be served with this meal . It is filling with Fritters and Vegetable Raita. Simultaneously you can prepare both fritters and Raita in  30 minutes. Easy way to feed Green for Kids and we know Kids like Fritters , Pancakes and Cutlets . To go along with it I prepared a quick Yogurt ( Curd) Raita with Bottle Gourd and couple  more Vegetables .
