Bread roundels with a scrumptious mixed-veg topping is exciting enough, but it shifts into a totally different plane when topped with sesame seeds and deep-fried too!

Well, these lip-smacking Vegetable Gold Coins are sure to start off any meal in a totally fun-packed way. But beware, this starter will set very high expectations for the upcoming main course, so you will have high standards to meet.

Make sure you spread the flour-water batter uniformly on the veggie-topped bread roundels, so that the two layers bind well, and sprinkle the sesame seeds also immediately so that they stick well to the batter.

When you drop these gold coins in the oil, they might splutter a little because of the sesame seeds, so be a little careful.

Topping of the Vegetable Gold Coins

  1. To make the Vegetable gold coins, we first have to make the topping. For that, take a deep mixing bowl and add the potatoes to it.
  2. Then add the finely chopped carrots to it for crunch.
  3. Then add the onions as well.
  4. Now add the chopped capsicum.
  5. Also add the sweet corn. Sweet corn kernels are first boiled and then coarsely crushed by grinding them in a mixer.
  6. Now add the spring onion greens to it.
  7. Add green chillies for spice.
  8. Then add the finely chopped ginger to it. You can also grate the ginger.
  9. Then add the garlic.
  10. Add a little soy sauce for a unique taste.
  11. Finally add salt to taste.
  12. Combine all the ingredients together to form a topping and keep aside.

How to Proceed with the Vegetable Gold Coins

  1. Take a bowl and add the plain flour to it.
  2. To it add ½ cup of water and mix well to make a thick paste.The mixture should nither be too thick nor too runny. Keep aside.
  3. Place a bread slice on a clean, dry surface.
  4. Place a 62 mm. (2½”) diameter cookie cutter on the centre of the bread. If you do not have a cookie cutter, you can use a steel bowl or vati.
  5. Press down on the bread slice and rotate to get the bread roundels. Repeat the same with remaining bread slices.
  6. Place 3 bread roundels on a clean, dry surface.
  7. Place approx. 1 tbsp of the topping over each bread roundel and spread it evenly.
  8. Spread a little plain flour - water mixture evenly over it.
  9. Sprinkle a little sesame seeds over the plain flour-water mixture.
  10. Repeat steps 6 to 9 to make 21 more vegetable gold coins.
  11. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and add 3 gold coins at a time.
  12. Deep fry them till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.Be very careful when you flip the Vegetable Gold Coins in the oil. The sesame seeds can start spluttering when subjected to hot oil. Wear an apron and stand at a safe distance from the kadhai when you are deep-frying.
  13. Drain on an absorbent paper. Repeat the same with the remaining Vegetable Gold Coins.
  14. Serve the Vegetable Gold Coins immediately with red chilli sauce.

Can you back it instead of deep frying.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Jinal, Baking the vegetable coins may not make it very crunchy.. As the batter may seep in through and make it soggy..
