Chicken Veggie Pockets ( Savory Cakes in a Sandwich-maker )

Chicken Veggie Pockets ... Savory cakes made with chicken, carrot, capsicum & spring onion; prepared in a sandwich-maker.

A few months ago, I posted a recipe for cakes in a sandwich-maker ( taken from a TV show). They were a great hit. I've received positive feedback from some blogger friends who have tried it. But, if you don’t have a sweet tooth, try this recipe! This savory cake recipe is taken from the same TV show. These were good, but not as soft like the sweet cakes.

Source : Masala Mornings

Makes :  8 sandwiches

Ingredients :
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 1 tsp.  salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp.  red chilli flakes
  • 1/4 tsp.  black pepper powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp.  baking powder
  • 1/3 cup boiled chicken, shredded
  • 1/4 cup capsicum, chopped
  • 1/4 cup spring onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup carrot, grated
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped
  • Cheddar cheese slices, as required

Method : 
  • Sieve flour and baking powder in a bowl, keep aside.
  • Beat eggs in a large bowl.
  • Gradually add cooking oil and continue beating.
  • Stir in salt, red chilli flakes, and black pepper powder.
  • Fold in flour mixture.
  • Add boiled chicken, carrot, capsicum, spring onion and green chilies.
  • If the batter is very thick, add little stock.
  • Prepare Sandwich Maker by brushing both sides of the sandwich maker ( cooking surface ) with cooking oil. Close and preheat until the light turns red.
  • Spoon the batter in each well until full but not overflowing.
  • Close the lid of the sandwich maker and cook for approximately 3 - 4 minutes or until golden brown & cooked.
  • Take it out and cut it from one side to make a pocket.
  • Place cheese slice in it. Serve with Ketchup.
Notes :
  • Check after 3 minutes with a toothpick, if the tooth pick comes out clean, it's ready. If not, cook a little longer, checking after every minute. 
  • They are best eaten right away. 
  • I used Chicken Tikka chunks and also cabbage in place of capsicum.  
  • I haven't  used cheese slices.
