Children will definitely love these veggie pops,so we can add the vegetables they refuse to eat and make these pops. Do make these pops and enjoy your evening time with your family and friends.

Add 2 tsp of maida to the cooked veggies,mix them well and make gooseberry sized balls.
Now roll the balls in the maida mixture that we have made already.
Immerse the balls in the boiling water for 3 secs and remove them immediately.
Coat them evenly with the bread crumbs.Deep fry the balls in oil until they turn golden brown.
Crispy Veggie pops are ready to serve.Serve with tomato ketchup or mint chutney.
TAKE CARE TIPS
We can add mashed potatoes instead of rava.
Instead of oregano,we can use garam masala powder also.
If you dont like to immerse the balls in boiling water then just dip them in maida paste(maida + water) and then coat them with bread crumbs.
