VERMICELLI BIRDS NEST

Birds Nest

Ingredients:

Potato - 250 gms
Onion - 1 medium chopped finely
Ginger-Garlic Paste - 1/2 tsp
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Amchur Powder - 1/2 tsp (dry mango powder)
White Pepper Powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Chaat Masala - 3/4 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp

Peas - a few, boiled

Vermicelli - broken into small pieces
Oil for frying

Batter:
All Purpose Flour - 3 tbsp
Corn Flour - 1.5 tbsp
Water
Salt

Preparation:
Boil the potatoes and mash them till no lumps are there.

Place the vermicelli on a plate.

Mix the ingredients for the batter without lumps. Make sure the consistency is slightly thick and not thin.

In a pan, add a 1/2 tsp oil and to this saute onion and ginger garlic paste. Saute till raw smell goes and add to the mashed potato. To this add all the powders and salt and mix nicely. Make small balls out of the lump.  Dip each ball in the batter making sure all the sides are coated with the batter. Then roll them with vermicelli. The more uneven the coating the better will be the look of the birds nest :). Place them on a plate and likewise complete the rest of the potato balls.
I felt the balls were kind off very soft so placed then in fridge for about 20 mins or so. Once the balls have been set make small hole imprint on top lightly and in a pan, deep fry the balls till the vermicelli turns light burned color. Place them on to tissue to remove the excess oil. Place the peas on top to represent the eggs of the birds and serve warm with ketchup :). You can also fry them as whole and place peas in between the potato balls before rolling them to a ball.

I would like to this over for the event Tea Time Snack


Cheers,
Neetz ;)
