Baked green peas fritters are green goodness packed with flavors with a perfect crunch element outside, and soft slightly crumbly texture. This munch-on-any-time-of-the-day snack ticks all the right boxes on your health chart. It’s so good for you that you can literally have more than a few and satisfy your cravings. I love snacks that are guilt free that allows me to eat a little more! 😀
There is nip in the air, full sleeves sweaters are on. For every right reason I crave for spicy, flavorful food all winter. Growling tummy is not uncommon thing during winters in my case. Cooking and eating right food goes a long way in keeping your body fit and trying to stay away from those extra loaded cheese/fat/oil. No, don’t stay away from all those “real” food, but do remember to indulge in moderation and once a while.
When green peas are in season there are few recipes you must definitely not miss trying. And I have another perfect winter recipe using green peas(fresh ones). It’s green peas soup – comfort food that will keep you warm. Because the soup is true winter food just like these baked fritters.
Food that is bland, lacks flavours puts my off big time! Simple food, packed with flavours is what I cook and I believe it’s a winner all over. Garlic-ginger , chili flakes, dried herbs is what we are talking. Simple ingredients, easy to make dish, flavour packed and perfect snack/appetizers that is guilt free – that’s why you should be trying this recipe at home.
