Veg Cutlets

Today I made Vegetable cutlets for dinner. I was not sure my daughter would like it. She avoids eating vegetables as much as possible. I usually need to find ways to hide the vegetables in the dishes that I make. But today she loved the cutlets. She also asked to take them for lunch to school tomottow. So now I have one more way to add vegetables to our menu. I used to make these cutlets long back but had stopped making as my daughter was not eating vegetables

The ingredients that I used are:- 2 large boiled potatoes, 1 big onion, 1/2 cup green peas(boiled), 1/2 cup finely chopped french beans, 1/2 cup grated carrot/beetroot,1/2 tsp green chilli paste, ginger paste, 1 tea spoon garam masala, salt to taste, coriande leaves, chopped. 4 slices of bread, oil for frying.

Method:- Mix together all the vegetables. Soak bread slices in water/milk. squeeze out the liquid. Add to veg mixture. add salt, chilli, ginger paste, garam masala. Mix well. form into balls. Flatten balls. roll in dry bread crumbs or rice flour/sooji. Deep fry or shallow fry as you wish. Serve with tomato ketchup/ coconut chutney.
