NUTTY QUINOA CORN FRITTERS -- a guest post



Hello everyone! Today I have Shobha from Food mazaa with me here. She is sharing a wonderful recipe with us here. Shobha would tell  us in her own words about herself and her recipe. 

****************************************************


Dear Friends,
It is really amazing how we make good friends in the blogging world. I recently got to know Meena and since we are both Sindhis from Mumbai we had a lot in common to share with each other. I am waiting to meet her when I go back. She is such a lovely person. Her blog RANDOM RAMBLINGS has simple, homely and delicious recipies that we can cook everyday in our homes. I am so glad to do a guest post for her blog.
Here's my Recipe:
NUTTY QUINOA CORN FRITTERS
These days quinoa is being used a lot by everyone. However if you don't find it you may use rice flour or corn flour ( makki ka ata , not corn starch) in this recipe.
Ingredients:
Peanuts .....   1/4 cup ( roasted and crushed)
Quinoa flour .. 1 cup
Corn ............. 1/2 cup (boiled and crushed)
Spring onion .. handful (chopped finely)
Coriander leaves .. handful (chopped finely)
Cheese .......... 1 tbsp (grated)
Red chillies ....  1 tsp (crushed)
Salt ............. to taste
Oil ............ to fry
Method:
1. Mix all the ingredients except oil to make a thick dough. Add salt carefully as the cheese, peanuts and corn are already salted. The consistency should be like how you make for aloo tikkis. (you may need to add a little more flour, check it out)
2. Heat oil in a pan. Take a lemon sized lump and flatten it on the palm of your hand. Deep fry until golden brown.
Serve immediately with sauce of your choice.
The fritters have a very nice taste of crunchy peanuts. My friends really loved them when I served these..It is a simple recipe and can be made in a jiffy for your guests.
As mentioned above, you may replace the Quinoa flour with Makki ka ata or Rice flour.(or mix both) 

Thanks Meena for inviting me to do a guest post for your blog. It was a pleasure doing it for you.
