I am a kind of person who loves good food and love to try my hand at different kind, but I always prefer shallow frying, keeping the health factors in mind. But yesterday, I did deep fry and they were so good, crunchy on the outside with soft gooey filling inside. It was a few green vegetables along with potato and onion that I used. Greens were capsicum, peas and spinach. In the middle of the mixture, I had kept a filling of cottage cheese with dry fruits and deep fried. Let me take you to the recipe without much ado.
