Vegetable Chops, the Recipe:
Oil for frying
For the filling you will need:1 chopped onion and tomato, and two cups of finely chopped raw vegetables like carrots, peas, french beans, cauliflower, etc. 1/2 teaspoon of ginger-garlic paste,1 teaspoon of vegetable oil ,Half a teaspoon of gharam masala powder(optional), Salt and black pepper powder to taste.
Heat oil in a pan and add ginger-garlic paste. After couple of minutes add the chopped onion and tomato. Fry for about five minutes and then add the chopped vegetables. When the vegetables are done(not too soft) add the gharam masala powder(optional), black pepper powder and salt as per your taste. Cook for another two minutes and turn of flame.
To Make the Vegetable Chops: Take sufficient amount of mashed potato to form a ball(about 3 inches in diameter). Make a small well in centre of the ball and fill with the prepared vegetable filling. Fold over the potato to close the well. Then flatten the potato ball( just a little bit to form a flat round in the centre) on a wooden board dusted with flour and fry. When one side is brown turn the chop over in the pan and fry till both sides are brown. Serve with tomato ketchup and fresh coconut chutney.
