Chick pea Kofta(VADA) reposted

When I started my new blog and posted a few recipes I was eagerly waiting for responses or comments !!! Even my kids would ask me as soon as they come from school "any comments?".. and you know what's the answer..My DD said to me: I'll tell my friends and they can tell their Mum's to look at your blog..  I posted quite a few recipes..and one of them is Chick Pea Kofta ..thought it was a great opportunity when I saw Repost Event going at on Dessi soccar mum ... so grabbing this, I'm posting some of my recipes again and waiting for my bloggywood friends opinion....

As these vadas are big hit in my family, especially my kids, I do make them in large quantity and freeze them..so whenever they want it for a snack, they can just warm them in the oven for 15-20 minutes..or even for save them for guests..
My earlier post of the same recipe was on the 8th Jan '10-- see here





Very similar to Falafel, but i added fresh green chillies in them to make them more spicer and I cooked these koftas from just soaked chickpeas.........

You will need
250 gms chickpeas(soaked overnight)
8-10 fresh green chillies
1 onion
3-4 cloves of garlic
Handful of coriander
salt according to your taste
1tbsp lemon juice
2tbsp chapatti flour
oil for frying

Method:-

Drain the water out from the soaked chickpeas. In a food processor add all the ingridiants except oil and flour, blend till its become fairly smooth with adding bit of water, now add flour and make a small ping pong size of balls. Fry them untill it's get golden brown. Enjoy with some fried chillies and raw onion!!!!!!!!!!
