QUINOA VEGETABLE FRITTERS WITH LENTILS, QUINOA AND CARROT LIME RASAM

Quinoa Vegetable fritters with Lentils  . Serve or Pack with Carrot Lime Rasam or with Onion Lime Salad.

I shared Quinoa Mixed Dal Dosa 4 years ago . Now and then I Prepare Fritters / Vada with same batter. This time I took Photo’s to share. The Ingredients are same . I added Vegetables, Spinach and Yogurt(Curd) for tangy taste. Grind the batter without water , so it won’t absorb Oil when you Shallow fry them. I prepare these fritters 2 ways Panfried for Weekend Lunch . If I want to Pack for Lunch Box , shallow fry with Minimum Oil ( One measuring cup) . They didn’t absorb oil . Added little chickpea flour and rice flour or Semolina ( sooji) for crispness  .So the Fritters stay soft and tasty even at room temperature. You can pack with CARROT LIME RASAM or with Ketchup or with ONION LIME salad( Older Kids like to eat with Salad) . 

Kids may not like Quinoa because of bitter taste and Pungent smell. But they won’t notice quinoa in these fritters  . Kid friendly recipe .
