Well disguised vegetable

After another long break(I am going to blame jetlag and getting back to work after long vacation) I have decided to re-enter the blogging scene. Do you have picky eaters at home? Are they not budging at all even after long cajoling? Then you should try to disguise your veggies and present them in a different form. That's exactly what I did with this dish. I got the idea for this snack from an acquaintance's mother; she served us this sncak when we were visiting them. I tried to get the recipe from her but she wouldn't disclose the method. Then I decided to reverse-engineer and I was successful. So here goes the recipe of deep fried green gram batter with snake gourd.

Pesara-potlakaya punukulu(Greengram dal/Moong dal bajji's with snake gourd)

Here is what you need:

* Green gram with husk - 1.5 cups
* Rice - 1/4 cup
* Chopped snake gourd - 1.5 cups
* Chopped onion - 1/4 cup
* Ginger root - 1 inch
* Chopped green chilies - 1/2 tbsp
* Cumin seeds - 1tsp (optional)
* Salt - acc to taste
* Oil - for deep frying

1) Soak the green gram dal along with rice in water over night. Grind the green gram, rice, green chilies and ginger root into a smooth paste adding very little water only if needed. Now add salt.

2) Mix the chopped onion and chopped snake gourd into the batter prepared in step 1.

3) Heat oil in a dutch oven/kadai. When the oil is hot enough take bite sized portions of the batter and fry them in oil(if you don't want to touch the batter with your hands, you can use cookie dough scooper).

They tasted really good with home made ginger pickle. Even Krishna loved them, ofcourse he was the reason I prepared these as I can't get him to eat snake gourd otherwise.
