CHEESE AND VEGETABLE FRITTERS / CHEESE PAKORAS (Continental Style)



Cheese and vegetable fritters are perfect for munching at tea time or with drinks. I am sure all the kids would love them too as they have no spices or chillies. Those who enjoy hot stuff can relish them with a spicy dip / sauce. The addition of vegetables can be variated according to the availability. Non vegetarians can add one egg to the batter too..


Ingredients:
APF / maida ......... 2-3 cups
Parmesan cheese ... 1 cup (grated)
Carrot ................ 1/4 cup (grated)
Green capsicum .. 1/4 cup (diced)
Red Capsicum ..... 1/4 cup (diced)
Spring onions ...... 1/4 cup (diced)
Egg .............. 1 (optional )
Baking powder .... 2 pinches
Dried oregano ..... 1 tsp
Dried basil...........  1 tsp (orfew fresh leaves chopped)
White or black pepper .... 1/4 tsp
Salt ............ to taste (add carefully as the cheese is already salty)
Oil ............ to fry.



Method:
1. Mix together all the diced vegetables, flour, cheese, salt, herbs and pepper.
2.  Make a thick batter adding sufficient water.
3. Heat oil in a pan.
4. Drop small portions of batter using a spoon or with your hand into the hot oil.
5. Reduce the flame and fry the fritters turning them occasionally until they are crisp and golden.
Serve hot with any sauce.
