As my work load is easing down and I’m slowly heading for a month off from work I have gradually started to post regularly here and also managed to visit a few blogs and I am so mighty happy. I was missing on blogging, trying new recipes and reading so many blogs.
My blogger friends are so creative and innovative that it’s completely my loss not to read their posts. Please leave links of those posts in my comment box which you think I have missed out reading in the last one month and which I should not have missed out and I promise I will surely visit and check them.
Everyday in the morning my attempt is to finish making my kid’s and my lunch box in 10-15 minutes and in this attempt I tried making many new recipes which I’m gradually going to post under Lunch Box Under 10 Mins series. I sincerely feel that it will be very useful for working women who are always in a time crisis and this is my way of helping them out.
Pecabre fritters is a short form of Peanuts, Cabbage and Bread fritters. I made these in close to 10 minutes and these are simply awesome. For saving time, I had deep fried the fritters but one is free to bake them too. They were a super hit in my kid’s and my lunch box too. The peanuts adds a nice crunch to the bite and the cabbage a great flavour.
The only requirement which actually comes out handy to make this is the food processor. I used the chopping attachment and my dough for the fritters was ready in 2 minutes.
These fritters need very few ingredients and are quite versatile as you can change the flavourings as per your choice but the end product using my ingredients is simply too good, try it to believe it.
4 whole wheat bread slices
3 green chillies
salt to taste
2 small handful raw peanuts
a few tea spoon coriander
about half cup cabbage
a few spoons corn-starch
oil for frying
Special Requirement- a food processor
In the food processor run the bread to make the crumbs.
To this add all the other ingredients leaving the oil and corn starch and give it a few pulses. Use raw peanuts as they get fried nicely, add an amazing crunch and saves time.
Add about 1/3 cup water and give a few more pulses to make a dough. Be careful while adding water as we want to make a soft dough, adding more water can spoil the dough.
Using the dough make small fritters and roll them in corn starch, remove the excess corn starch and deep fry over medium heat till golden in colour.
Remove on a kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.
Serve with tomato sauce or green chutney. I packed the fritters along with a sauce sachet.
Tip- Try adding soy sauce for a Chinese touch.
