Rice cutlets

This is the fabulous and healthiest way of using your leftover rice,in minutes you can fix this cutlets.Rice is very common and staple food in our everyday meals but sometimes when we happen to make some extra  rice ,its kinda boring to consume the leftover rice ,we try and cook some other variety of rice,using some veggies or yogurt etc..but to make a yummy snack out of it is highly pleasing our taste,when i made them for the first time i really used the leftover rice but now i purposely make more rice and use the remaining rice specially to make this cutlets .I and my hubby crave for it very often now.I had bookmarked this when i saw preety's post on her left over wonders on her relishing recipes food blog,please do visit her space for more spectacular dishes.
Linking this to priya's Every tuesday-bookmarked recipes event ,now hosted by aipi.

Ingredients :
1-1/2 cups of cooked rice ( preferable leftover ones )
3 tbsps cornflour
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1-2 finely chopped green chillies
1-2 tsps of garam masala  ( adjust acc to ur taste)
1/2 cup vegetables (grated carrots ,peas , grated beetroots..etc ..  optional )
1-2 cloves of garlic,grated
1 small piece of ginger,grated
handful of chopped corriander leaves
lemon juice to taste
salt to taste
oil for shallow frying
1/2 cups of breadcrumbs for coating ( i used  coarse semolina / rava   )
method :
Mash the cooked rice till soft and mushy,add all the other ingredients except breadcrumbs / semolina and oil and mix well.Take lemon size mixtures and flatten them like a tikki or a circular disc and dust each of them with bread crumbs or semolina and shallow fry them and serve hot with ketchup  or corriander chutney.
pls note :
you can deep fry the cutlets as well .Here i have not shallow or deep fried but used only few spoons of oil and fried on a non-stick pan which was little time consuming but was more healthy .
