Now that I’ve spilled all my thoughts to you, let me get on with this new recipe – Another no oil recipe, except to grease the pan – I feel a deep sense of achievement every time I don’t need to use much oil In Words
1 small acorn squash (you can sub this with sweet potatoes or potatoes or any other veggie available. Even peas and carrots will work well
2 cans of red beets drained / or 2 fresh beets, peeled, boiled and drained
1 red onion
3-5 green chillies (not for the faint-hearted)
2 teaspoons curry powder
Oil for greasing the pan
Cut and boil the squash so that it can be squishy
Drain the beets and keep
In a bowl mash the two veggies
Add some of the onions and the chillies and curry leaves
1 teaspoon of curry powder and salt mixed in with the veggies
Add 1 tbs of oats and mix in
In a plate, take a handful of instant oats and bread crumbs

Now make some ball with the veggies and drop it into the plate with the oats mix roll it around to coat the ball and then gently flatten and transfer to greased pan
Repeat until all are ready
