Dhingri Batata Vada/Mushroom Potato Fritter in Appe Pan

Mushrooms, though am a great fan of this edible fungus, my lil one is a complete hater. However i dont forget to feed him with this antioxidant rich mushrooms which is quite low in fat and calorie. I know adding those mushroom chunks with his favourite vegetable, he just cant discard them, hence i opted for our favourite batata vada. Batata vada is quite a popular street food which is quite known for their deep fried outer layer with a delicious potato masala inside. I have made my own twist by adding finely chopped mushrooms to the usual potato masala to dish out some ultimate Mushroom potato fritters. And i opted for Appe pan aka Paniyaram pan just to avoid deep frying.

Mushroom Potato Batata Vada

Am running this week's blogging marathon with Kid's Delight - Veggies sneaked in, seriously i love this theme. Yes its not an easy task to feed vegetables to kids na, and being a mom of three i always confronted this situation. However i always overcome this situation just by adding my kid's favourite ingredients just to feed them easily. Coming to this Dhingri aloo batata vada, its quite an interesting snack food to make and feed your kids easily especially when they are back to home after a long day at school. Mix and match with your favourite vegetables or beans, and dont forget to keep potato masala as the main ingredient.

Wow! Making these in the appe pan is a neat idea. Nice way to sneak in mushrooms here.

Adding mushrooms along with potatoes is a great idea Priya. And the paniyaram pan is a nice way to avoid deep frying. Even I did the same with today's recipe.

Rafeeda AR said...

Wow! Love the idea of making it in appe pan! Must do it next time, deep frying literally gives me a heart ache... hehe... Like the idea of hiding the mushrooms, but unfortunately my elder one is another hater of mushroom and gets it how much ever I sneak it in... :/
