Creamy Veg Balls

Hellooo, it is very hot in bahrain now. The cooking part is tough these days because of the heat. But still tummy rumbles for some yummy snacks once a while. This happened on one such day. This appetizer/snack is made of white sauce and vegetables. You can include veggies of your choice/chicken/mushroom.  Serve hot :)


Ingredients
  • Butter - 2 tsp (unsalted)
  • Olive oil - 1 tsp
  • Maida - 1 tbsp
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Onion - 1 medium (chopped)
  • Carrot - 1 medium (chopped) see Note
  • Green peas - 1 handful (frozen)
  • Pepper powder - 1 tsp (or as per your spice level)
  • Salt to taste
  • Egg white - 1 (OR) corn flour - 2 tsp 
  • Bread crumbs - as required for coating

Method
  • Cook the carrot and green peas adding little salt. (You can use veggies of your choice like mushroom, corn etc.)
  • To make white sauce heat butter and olive oil in a kadai.
  • Add maida and stir it for 10 seconds.
  • Don't let it burn. Add milk and stir very quickly so that it doesn't form lumps. 
  • Let it simmer and thicken.
  • Add salt to taste and pepper powder. (Be careful to add salt as required as you're cooking vegetables with salt.)
  • Switch off the flame. 
  • Add chopped onion, cooked carrot and green peas. Mix well.  see Note
  • If the mix seems loose, switch on the flame and thicken it so that u can take scoops of it. 
  • Switch off the flame.
  • Put bread crumbs in a plate. 
  • Keep beaten egg white/loose cornflour paste (add 1/2 cup water to cornflour and make a paste) ready
  • Take a scoop of the veg mix and put in crumbs. 
  • Roll in bread crumbs. 
  • Dip the roll in egg white/cornflour paste
  • Again roll in bread crumbs
  • Deep fry in oil. 
Note
If using chicken, cook it boneless with salt and pepper. Shred and mix in white sauce along with vegetables
If you want it more rich add grated cheese while mixing vegetables. 


You don't need any sauce to enjoy this  :)
