Bread-Veggie Cutlet | Instant Tea-time Snack


If u has a pack of bread in hand and you are bored on the same sandwiches and upma, here comes the savior. You can turn ur bread into a yum-sum tea time snack. You should not worry about the extra pounds ur gaining cos of this.



I had few slices of bread which is expiring the next day.  I don’t want to throw it away simply, so I used it in the usual cutlet as a binding agent instead of besan. These cutlets are really very soft. If u desires a crisper version, add 1tsp of rice flour. To make it much interesting u can put the patties in between the normal buns and make a veggie burger. 


Ingredients

4-5 bread slices
1 carrot
¼ cup chopped cabbage
1tbsp grated paneer
1 potato
½ tsp chilli powder
½ tsp garam masala
Chopped coriander leaves
Salt - to taste
Oil - as required

 How to make it

  • Boil the potatoes, peel the outer skin and mash it. Grate the carrot and add with the mashed potatoes along with cabbage, coriander leaves and grated paneer.
  • Add chilli powder and garam masala to it. Add salt and mix well.
  • Remove the sides of the bread slices and give a quick-dip in a bowl of water. Squeeze the extra water by pressing it in between ur palms.

  • Now mix the bread slices with the veggies and make small patties.
  • Heat oil in a tawa and place the patties one-by-one.
  • Cook till it turns golden brown.

  • Serve hot with ketchup.


Notes
  1. Other than these veggies I used chopped asparagus.  It is ur choice of using the veggies. Always use grated or finely chopped veggies.
