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 )
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 .
