Mint Sweet Corn Balls/Pudhina Sweet Corn Kola Urundai

Kola urundai, this deep fried balls are usually prepared with minced meat, but am trying to replicate those meat loaded balls with different vegetables. I have already tried couple of versions of this popular meat loaded kola urundais. Since these deep fried balls are my kid's favourite, i dont forget to make them once a while eventhough am keeping myself away from deepfrying. I have created few of my own kola urundais with varieties of vegetables and ingredients as these balls are just prefect to feed kids easily with vegetables. Though these balls are usually deep fried even you can prepare them as no deep fried balls just by cooking them through paniyaram pan.
Here comes few of own versions of Kola urundais:
1)Soya Chunks Kola Urundai
2)No deep fry Chickpeas kola urundai
3)Broccoli Kola urundai
4)Soya Kheema Cashew Nut Kola Urundai
5)Mushroom Spinach Kola urundai
6)Egg Kola Urundai

Minty Sweet corn Balls, Sweet corn kola urundai

And here comes an another version of Kola urundais which i tried few days back for our evening snacks. Sweet corn cobs are easily available now hence i tried with those sweet corn kernels for making these deep fried balls. Trust me those sweet corn kernels works prefect to dish out these dangerously addictive balls. To add some flavor, i opted for mint leaves . Both sweet corn kernels, mint works awesome together to prepare these cuties. Kids enjoyed thoroughly with ketchup, and these cuties are going to this week's blogging marathon. My theme for this week's blogging marathon is Kid's delight - Moive time munchies, since these balls are just prefect for movie time, am posting this dish for the theme.Sending this to Srivalli's Kid's Delight event, guest hosted by Ritu themed on Movie Time Munchies.
