This is truly a kid friendly recipe that s super quick on the stove. Plus its not deep fried. Take note my friends. I m heavily emphasizing the not deep fried part. I m sure that sounds like music to your ears. And its healthy enough if its got all veggies right? You can make them as a starter or a snack. Sadly, i couldnt get decent pictures cos i had like what? some 5 people hovering over me while i was trying to shoot. So please bear with the pictures and dont let them deceive you. This was a total hit. Remember the prize?

(In case, you dont want to bake them, you can cook them in a paniyaram pan(aebleskiver pan) by pouring little oil in each groove and placing each ball in a groove. Cook them till they turn golden and crisp all over. You can also deep fry them if you dont count your calories!For an extra crunch, roll the balls in bread crumbs before you cook them.)
