Cheese Veggie Strips

Kids love all kinds of fried stuff. Though they are high on calories, i do give in at times and make something for my little one. This time i used some veggies and cheese along with a little seasoning to make these easy snacks. The strips can be made and stored in the fridge for 2-3 days .

Preparation Time - 20-25 minutes

Ingredients - 1 medium sized boiled and peeled potato, 2 tbs finely chopped carrots, 2 tbs finely chopped beans, 2 tbs sweet corn, 1/2 cup grated cheese, 1 tsp grated ginger, 1 tsp finely chopped garlic, 1/2 tsp pepper powder, 1/2 tsp red chilli powder or 1 tsp chilli sauce , salt to taste, 2 tsp finely chopped coriander.

For the outer layer - 1 cup freshly made bread crumbs, 1 tbs cornflour, little cornflour for dusting, salt to taste, oil for shallow frying.

Preparation - Take all the ingredients ( except those for the outer layer ) into a mixing bowl. Mix well and shape into long flat strips.

Take the 1 tbs cornflour and mix it with 3-4 tbs of water. Add a little salt and form a thin batter.

Take the breadcrumbs in a flat plate. ( To make fresh bread crumbs, take 2 slices of bread, cut off the sides and transfer to a food processor. Buzz for 1 second. Fresh breadcrumbs are ready. )

Cooking - Heat the oil in a wok.

Take each strip, dust it with a little cornflour, dip in the thin batter and roll in the breadcrumbs.

Dip in the hot oil and fry till light brown on both sides.

Serve with chilli & tomato sauce.
