Minty fritters - Baked savoury recipes

minty fritters The other day when I was making pudina parathas for dinner, an idea to make this savoury struck me. Actually when I was kneading the dough, the aroma that filled the air in the kitchen reminded me of the Indian sweet marts where one can find maida papdis(mathri-indian savoury). So, I kept a small portion of the dough to make them. So, as I used the same dough ,you can guess that this is made with whole wheat. I generally try to avoid deep frying , so I baked them. So this healthy munchies is ready in minutes. It was quite crispy ,taste great and had a wonderful aroma.
Keeping some of the events going on in the blogosphere, I cut them into heart shapes. They are usually shaped into small circles. A good snack for tea time too.minty frittersIngredients-
Wheat flour-1cup
Mint leaves- 1 cup
Coriander leaves- 1cup
Garlic cloves- 2
Ajwain/carom seeds- 1/4tsp
Fennel seeds- 1tsp
Salt- 1tsp
Green chillies- 1 chopped
Oil- 2tsp+to coat on the baking tray

Heat a teaspoon of oil in a pan add green chilles and garlic, then the cut mint leaves and coriander leaves. Saute for two minutes. Then grind it to a coarse paste sprinking little water. Add this paste to the wheat flour. Add carom and fennel seeds and salt. Add little water as required and knead into a smooth dough using little oil. Make small balls of the dough and roll it into a circle with a rolling pin. Cut the dough to small circles or shape of your choice with a cookie cutter.
Place them on a greased baking tray. Bake them at 180c for 10-15 minutes.

So they go to the following event-
1. Priyanka's cook and create for love with love.
2.Bindiya's heart shaped foods
3.Ivy of kopiaste who is hosting think spice- think twice- fennel seeds or mastic gum, the event started by sunita of Sunita's world
4. This also goes to Alka(Sindhi rasoi) who is hosting "Just for you event" ,that is because my toddler loved this fritters so much that he kept pointing his finger to the container containing this fritters asking for more. And my hubby loved them as much as his son did and am planning to make more batches of these healthy munchies soon just for them.
