Red Kidney bean Koftas

When Srivalli , announced about Blogging Marathon , wanted to participated in it ...and she sent me details about that ....she has given some 7 categories ..and also gave a special note that this time alone , we can choose daily one category ...so hoping that will continue posting the recipes on all the seven days without any hindrances ...and here are the list of fellow bloggers , who are taking part in this marathon ....

Well Coming to the recipe , Today I chose the snacks category ....My son is a big fan of koftas ...often I do koftas ...just keep changing the ingrendients ...

Ingredients needed :
  • Red kidney beans - 2 cups
  • Oats - 1 cup
  • Bread crumbs 
  • Salt
  • Chilli Powder
  • Lime juice
  • Oil
 Method :

Soak red kidney beans overnight and pressure cook it well , till done. Soak oats in water and leave it for 5 mins ...then squeeze the water fully and keep it aside You can also add just the powdered oats drain the excess water in red kidney beans and grind it coarsely, just use the whip/pulse button and do it for few secs. to the grinded beans add the oats + salt + chilli powder + lime juice and mix it well now take a small ball size of the dough and roll it well in bread crumbs either u can deep fry these koftas in oil or use paniyaram pan and add little oil and fry it well ...keeping the flame in medium so that it gets cooked well. You can enjoy these with tomato sauce ...
