Preheat your oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil and lightly grease it with oil.
In a large bowl, combine the kidney beans, millets, parsley, green chillies, garlic grated carrots along with pepper, coriander powder, cumin powder and salt. Use your hands to mix all of these well.
Now add the grated MotherDairy cheese to this mixture. Bring it all together like a "dough" , mashing the cheese, beans and millets with your hands. No need to knead it!
Spread out the sesame seeds in a plate. Put some oil in your hands and form into 9-10 equal sized patties. Roll the patties in the sesame seeds. Lay them out on your prepared tray. You can refrigerate these for later use at this point. Brush with oil on both sides. Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning them once halfway.

Serve warm with sauteed vegetables and a dip of your choice. Enjoy!
