Oil for deep frying
Steam the vegetables in a steamer and let them cool, Mash the vegetables coarsely and add salt.

Heat oil in a big vessel and add the chopped onions; fry the onions till golden brown. Add ginger paste, cumin powder, chili powder and saute.

Now add the mashed vegetables and fry for 5 mins. Turn off the flame and add roasted peanuts to the above.

Make small balls out of this mixture. Now mix the cornstarch with some water to make a batter. Dip each of the above-made balls in the batter. Afterwards coat each ball with the bread crumbs, press to make like patties and place onto a plate.
Repeat the process for all the balls and then place them in the refrigerator for 1 hour or longer.
