Oats Crusted Rajma Balls

Its has been a long i havent prepared anything with rajma well known as red kidney beans, weekend went truly fast and prepared this crispy oats crusted rajma balls along with some cooked potatoes and spices for our sunday evening...These crispy balls suits fabulous for snacks or as an appetizier also definitely a crowd pleaser which suits prefectly for a party menu when served along simply with ketchup or some spicy chutneys..I served it simply with ketchup and everyone at home enjoyed having this crispy beauties without any hesitation, personally i felt its one of the best and better way to sneak rajma beans because none at home like rajma masala apart from me,since the cooked beans gets mashed along the potatoes, none will notice the addition of rajma beans and wat a wonderful way to feed my picky eaters with this fabulous beans..Sending this yummy crispy balls to Radhika's CBB Series - Evening Tiffin & to MLLA#35th helping guest hosted by Smitha,event by Susan..

  39. These must be really tasty! I'd love to try them since I love both these beans and oats. Do you think that baking instead of deep frying may work for these little beauties? Thanks!
