Minty fritters – Baked savoury recipes

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.

  1. 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.
