A tasty and quick tiffin idea for kids – yummy vegetable cutlets. These can be made in minutes from fresh ingredients as well as left-overs, mainly left-over bread slices and left-over aloo ki sabji (spicy potato side dish).
You will need:
Bread slices – 6
Roasted cumin powder – 1/4 tsp
Chilly powder – 2/8 tsp
Coriander powder – 1/4 tsp
Boiled vegetables(potato, green peas,carrots and french beans)
Left over vegetable side dish(potato,green peas,french beans or brinjals)
Juice of 1/4 lemon
Salt to taste
Semolina(Rawa) – 3 tbsp
Chopped coriander leaves – 2 tbsp
Cooking oil for shallow frying
How to prepare Vegetable Cutlets
Mash the bread slices with the boiled vegetables or the left over side dish. Make sure that you go easy on the spices in case you are using a left over side dish. Add coriander powder, chilly powder, cumin powder, lemon juice, chopped coriander leaves and salt to taste. Mix well. Make flattened balls of the mixture. Coat them evenly with semolina and shallow fry in a non-stick fry pan. Semolina makes crispy cutlets. You can substitute semolina with dry bread crumbs.
Serve crispy veg cutlets with tomato sauce or mint chutney. You can even pack this for kids lunchboxes. Veg cutlets are equally enjoyed as a tea time snack and are easy to make especially when unexpected guests turn up.
