  • ½ cup sooji/ Semolina
  • ¼ cup Onion Chopped
  • ¼ cup Fresh Peas
  • ¼ cup Beans Chopped
  • ¼ cup Carrot Chopped
  • ¼ cup Mushroom Chopped
  • 2-3 cup Water
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoon Mixed Herbs
  • 1 cup gms Boiled Mashed Potatoes
  • 2 Green Chillies Chopped
  • 2 tablespoon Mint Leaves Chopped
  • 2 tablespoon Coriander leaves Chopped
  • 2 tablespoon Cheese Grated


  • Heat oil in a pan and all the veggies in it. Let the onion, peas, beans, carrot and mushroom to saute first.
  • After 3-4 minutes when the veggies are well saute add half cup of semolina in the same pan and roast it with the vegetables on slow-to-medium heat.
  • When the semolina is well roasted add 2 and a half cup of water in it and mix well.
  • Then add salt to taste and a teaspoon of mixed herbs in the pan.
  • Now, cook all the veggies and semolina for another 5 minutes and after that switch off the heat of the pan.
  • When the heat is off then add 200 gms of boiled mashed potatoes in them and mix it in the pan.
  • Now add chopped green chillies, mint leaves and coriander leaves on it. Sprinkle some grated cheese in the mix and mix them well.
  • Now, lay butter paper on a flat surface and take out the mixture on it. Spread the mixture evenly with around ¾ of thickness.
  • After the sooji squares are well spread cover and refrigerate it for 30 mins.
  • After 30 minutes take them out of the refrigerator and cut into 1 and a half square inch.
  • The veggie squares are ready to fry.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan and when it starts to smoke carefully add the fries in it.
  • Shallow fry the veggie squares from all the sides and serve hot.



  • To make perfect shaped veggie squares one has to saute all the veggies first to dry out any moisture from veggies and cook them.
  • Roast the sooji/semolina along with the veggies to remove the raw flavour.
  • When the sooji is cooked switch off the heat and then add boiled mashed potatoes, coriander leaves, cheese and other ingredients.
  • Since I refrigerated the semolina and veggie mixture prior to frying I used butter paper to spread the mixture evenly.
  • You can always use a flat surface or a plain plate brushed with oil to spread the mixture evenly.
    Apply oil on your hands before flattening the mixture.
