One of my favorite breakfasts on lazy Sunday mornings is Vegetable cutlets. My husband does not prefer cutlets as they are deep fried and therefore he avoids the same. So we both usually have kebabs which can be shallow fried and make you feel less guilty about the calorie factor.
Here is the recipe
2 Medium Potatoes (boiled and mashed)
1 Cup Green Peas (boiled and mashed)
2 tbsp Paste of Raw Papaya (boiled and mashed)
3 tbsp Chana Daal/Bengal Gram (boiled and mashed)
1 Slice of Bread
2 Green Chillies chopped
1 small onion (cut to small pieces)
1/4 tbsp Garam Masala
1/2 tbsp mango powder/amchur
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Cumin powder
1/2 tbsp Cumin seeds
Mix and mash together the boiled potatoes, papaya (makes the cutlets soft), green peas, chana daal, crumbled bread (for bonding).
Add Green chillies, onions, garlic paste, coriander, mint, salt and the dry spices. Mix well. Now shape this mixture into patties. Heat the oil in the pan and shallow fry these patties until golden brown. Place them on a paper napkin so that it can absorb the extra oil. Serve the kebabs with Mint chutney, tomato sauce with a dash of lemon!
