Rajma Cheese Cigar Rolls/Cheese Kidney Beans Cigar Rolls

While watching a movie or a Tv show, we always look for something crispy, savory and filling to munch. Obviously my mind will always think about adding some interesting ingredients easily in those munchies.I always love to add beans in most of my dishes, yes beans are rich in proteins, i have some picky eaters who doesnt even touch beans aka legumes in their meal. Hence i love to add beans in most of my dishes and mask them with other ingredients to feed them easily. One among those trials is this cheese loaded kidney beans cigar rolls. The stuffing of this cigar rolls is definitely an interesting one. None noticed the addition of Kidney beans as they mashed nicely and mixed with mashed potatoes and spices. Everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly these crispy fried beauties.
Sending this to Srivalli's Kid's Delight event, guest hosted by Ritu themed on Movie Time Munchies.

Cheesy Rajma Cigar Rolls, Rajma Cigar Rolls

Cigar rolls are crispy fried tiny rolls stuffed usually with spicy fillings like vegetable, paneer or sometimes with meat kheemas like chicken or mutton. But my version of cigar rolls goes for spiced rajma and cheese filling. These cigar rolls are extremely super easy to make and definitely very addictive,needless to say these tiny finger food sounds as much as like spring rolls. An excellent snack food to serve with sauces like ketchup etc. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Kid's Delight - Movie Time Munchies, hence these cigar rolls goes for this week's theme.
