My mum prepares Sabzi/Bhaji of Colocasia roots which is also called as Maddi .The bhaji is papered by adding dry prawns or prepared just plain using Indian spices and it really tastes good with rice roti/bhakri. I had never tried preparing dishes out of colocasia and these croquettes are my first experiment with these healthy roots which are also rich in Iron. Its really impossible to make today's kids to feed these healthy veggies .So Tried doing healthy croquettes combining maddi/Colocasia and flat rice ( poha ) and few ingredients like cheese,smashed potato and herbs.Hope you mommies out there like the recipe.
4 Colocasia roots boiled
1 Boiled Potato
1 Cup Soaked flat rice
1/4 Cup spring onions chopped
1 Chopped onion
1 Cup grated cheese
1 Tsp pepper crushed
2 Tsp fresh coriander
1 Tsp Garam Masala
1 Cup Multipurpose flour paste(little watery)
Bread crumbs for coating
Oil for deep frying(can do shallow frying as well
1.) Boil the colocasia roots and peel it .
2.)Soak flat rice(poha)in water and drain the extra water completely by squeezing between your palms.
6.)Then dip each croquette into maida batter and then coat with bread crumbs and place in a plate and keep in refrigerator for 5 to 10 min.
7.)Later deep fry until golden brown and serve hot with sauce or dip of your choice.
