Baked Mushroom & Black-eyed Peas Vada

As i told earlier, am trying to keep myself from deep fried fritters and trying nowadays baking them in oven just to skip the excess of oil, coz am planning to make some crispy murukkus and many more deep fried savouries for upcoming diwali..Yesterday i prepared this healthy mushroom and black-eyed peas vada for celebrating Ayudha pooja in a healthy way, these baked vada tastes incredible when served as side dish for rice or else simply with sweet chilly sauce or ketchup or else with spicy coconut chutney, the addition of mushroom gives a wonderful texture to this usual black-eyed peas vada and everyone at home liked this vada very much..



2cups Black-eyed peas (soaked overnite)
1/2cup Button mushrooms (chopped finely)
1no Onion (chopped)
3nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Ginger (chopped)
2nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
1/2tsp Fennel seeds (crushed)
Few Curry leaves
Few Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt
Oil for brushing

Grind the black-eyed peas coarsely without adding water, if its too hard to grind just springle few drops of water..now add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies, ginger pieces, crushed garlic,chopped curry leaves, coriander leaves, crushed fennel seeds, chopped mushroom pieces and salt to the grounded batter..Preheat the oven to 350F,line a greased baking sheet over a baking tray and keep aside..

Make small balls from the vada batter and flatten them..Arrange the flattened vadas over the greased baking sheet,brush the top of the vadas with few drops of oil and bake for 20-25minutes until the crust turns golden brown, serve hot with any chutneys or sauces..
