- The veggie mixture is ready, turn off the flame and let it cool down.
- Meanwhile, let’s prepare the batter. In a bowl add Maida, corn flour, 1/4th tsp salt, add 1/4th cup of water and ready it into a smooth batter. Add more water accordingly to prepare a lump free batter.
- Now add 1tsp of oil in the batter and mix well.
- Take another mixing bowl and add boiled potatoes to it, salt to taste, rice flour, sooji, finely chopped coriander, and to top it all add the sautéed vegetables and mix so that all ingredients come together. The kebab mixture is ready.
- To shallow fry heat some oil in a pan on a low flame.
- Take a small amount of kebab mixture into your palms and make it into a smooth flat ball.
- Dip the kebab ball in the batter first and then coat it evenly with the breadcrumb mixture. Place it on a plate.
- Make the other kebabs similarly dipping in batter first and then coating with breadcrumbs.
- The oil is hot so gently slide the two kebabs into the pan. Let it cook on a medium flame until golden from one end.
- Flip the other side in the oil and cook until golden from this side as well.
