Soya Keema Fritters Recipe
Soya Kola Urundai (Soya Keema Fritters) - Doesnt that sound interesting?! For those who are new to kola urundai :
It is a traditional chettinad delicacy.It is nothing but deep fried meat balls made with minced meat along with a blend of various spices like cinnamon,cloves,onion,garlic and cilantro.They can be served as a appetiser or snack.They also make a kuzhambu and soak the balls in it...It is so flavourful and tasty, one of  my favorites...will sure post it soon meanwhile check out this vegetarian version :)

This is my humble attempt to replicate kola urundai amma makes.....And soya kheema is the best alternate to mutton kheema I would say. Its still chill here and I had an excuse to make a deep fried snack...I tried these fritterst yesterday and to my surprise it came out good  in my first attempt itself so couldn't wait to share it here :)
