Healthy snack could also be really tasty.One such tasty and yummy starter or evening snack is corn and carrot patties.It is quite easy and kids will really love it.My son enjoys these patties a lot.I generally dont prefer deep frying on a regular basis so I pan roasted it with a tsp of oil,but if you want to deep fry you can very well do it for a crispy corn and carrot rolls or cutlets.I made it with frozen american sweet corn kernels,but if fresh sweet corn kernels are available you can use it for these patties.
Preparation time:25 - 30 mins
Grated Carrots-2 big nos
American sweet corn kernels-3 tbsp
Boiled potatoes-3 nos
White oats-3 tsp
Bread crumbs powder-3 tbsp
or powder 3 rusks in a mixer.
Green Chillies-2 nos(increase if you want it very spicy)
Ginger - 1 inch
garam masala-1 tsp
chopped fresh coriander leaves-few
oil-few tsp to roast the patties
1.Grind sweet corn,ginger,garlic and green chillies to a coarse paste.
2.To the above ground paste add grated carrots,boiled and mashed potatoes,oats,salt,garam masala,coriander leaves and bread crumbs and mix well.
3.Make a firm dough like mixture.
4.Roll out the above mixture into small patties and dip them over oats so that it covers the outer part of the patties.
5.Heat a non stick pan, place the patties and pour a tsp of oil around each patty.
6.Once they get roasted on one side,turn them carefully and roast the other side till they are golden brown.Serve hot with tomato ketchup or green chutney .
* Do not add water when grinding the sweet corn paste.
* Bread crumbs and oats absorbs moisture from the patties keeping them firm so do not avoid them.
* If the mixture still has moisture then you can even add a slice of bread and mix well.If the mixture is not firm then the patties will break when turning them on the pan.
*Do not add more garlic than specified ,otherwise it's flavor will be overpowering as we are pan roasting the patties.
