Vegetable pockets, Easy & tasy breakfast/dinner/snacks recipe- kuzhali samaiyalarai







Vegetable pockets  is one of a easy yet tasty recipe suitable for packing lunch boxes . it can be served for breakfast/dinner  or even as evening snacks.

It is so filling as we have stuffed a lot of vegetables.

The stuffing can be prepared as per our own wish. I have shared a basic way of making the stuffing. In that we can add or reduce the vegetables, can even add paneer, mushroom or cheese too.

The one and only thing we need to make sure is the stuffing should not be thin/runny. We should make the stuffing as dry as possible while cooking the vegetables, then only while cooking , the masala will not come out .
