Am running this week’s blogging marathon with an interesting theme, my theme for this week is Stuffed dishes. And i kick starting this theme with this nutritious, protein packed Rajma Batata Vada. Apart from adding mashed rajma, this batata vada calls for usual ingredients. Also not to forget that this Rajma batata vada calls for appe pan aka paniyaram pan, yes this cuties are not deep fried. I used Paniyaram pan to make them totally guilt free as appe pan asks for less quantity of oil than the deep fried ones. However if you want to deep fry them, dont hesitate a second. Trust me, you cant just stop yourself munching these vadas. We loved it to the core, though i served these guilt free vadas with sweet chilly sauce.
