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.

Recipe Notes

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.
