Gold Coin is the right Answer!


Rekha from Rekha's Kitchen had the right answer! It is Gold coin....
Mina learnt this from her sister, Neeta. And she learnt this from a cooking class she went to in the early 90's in Andheri, Mumbai..
Anyway, Mina has "WOW'ed" us everytime she makes this. It is a great appetizer and also easy to make.
You need
1 lb Frech cut Frozen Beans, thawed
3 carrots Grated
1/2 cup Green Peas
2 Potatoes (Boiled and Mashed)
Ginger Paste - 1 Tsp
Green Chili Paste - 2 Tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 Tsp
Garam Masala - 1 Tsp
Salt - as needed
Oil - 2 to 3 Tsp
Mustard- 1 Tsp
Hind - a dash
Bread - 1 Loaf
Method
---> In a kadai, add the oil, and when it gets hot add the mustard and hing.
--->Once the mustard sputters, add all the veggies except potatoes and also add the masalas including the pastes.
--->Cook this on a medium flame until all the veggies are cooked and blended with the masala mix, and once it is cooked, switch off the stove.
--->Once the cooked mixture of veggies and masala is cooled, add the potatoes and make patties
--->Take two slices of bread and wet one side of each slice and drain on a towel
--->Put the patty on the wet side of one slice and cover it with the other slice, with the wet side facing the patty
--->Seal them both together with water and cut the whole gold coin to make a circle.
---> Do this until you have finished all the vegetable mixture.
--->Deep fry this in hot oil, until golden brown.
Actually, Mina does all prep work and keeps the bread filled patty in the fridge the day before she needs them.
Enjoy this with some green chutney....
