Easy cutlets

Leftover bread pieces, leftover bread sides , leftover potato curry can be transformed into cutlets for morning breakfasts.This is very easy & filling as well !As the bread gets older , cutlets get better ! Dry breads make for better cutlets, in short ! This is called upcycling of leftovers !

Ingredients : 1-2 boiled medium sized boiled potatoes ,2 medium carrots, a few kadi pattas ( curry leaves), 1 tbsp finely chopped hara dhania, 2 -4 slices of brown bread ( even white bread is fine ), 1 tsp garted ginger, 1 tsp flax seed powder ( optional ),1 tsp finely chopped green chillies ( or use 1 tsp red chilli powder), 1 tbsp lemon juice ( in summers,1 tsp grated raw mango can be used ),1/4 tsp turmeric,1/4 tsp hing, 2 tbsp oil,salt to taste.

Method : Clean & grate the carrots.Keep aside.Finely chop the kadi pattas after washing them.Mix them with the grated carrots,grated ginger ,chopped green chillies & chopped coriander.Keep aside.

Meanwhile crumble the bread slices into fine grainy powder in mixer.Roughly cut green chillies,kadi pattas ,coriander can be added to this in the mixer along with roughly broken bread slices to get an evenly mixed bread chilli-coriander-kadi patta mix !

Mix this bread crumble with grated carrots-chilli-coriander-kadi patta mix.Add salt ,lemon juice ( or grated raw mango ) ,flax seed powder,haldi & hing.Mix nicely.Keep aside. Peel the boiled potatoes  & mash them..Mix the mashed potatoes  with the bread carrot mix.Knead nicely all mix into a dough.Add a little water if you feel it is too dry.I did not add any water.

Grease palms with little oil & take a small amount of dough & pat it into a circular shape like a pedha though a bigger pedha.Repeat with the remaining dough & make circular pedhas.I made some 12 pedhas with the dough.

Warm a tawa on the gas.Smear the tawa with oil.Transfer the pedhas 5-6 at a time on to the tawa.Cover with lid.Let it cook for 5 minutes.Uncover & flip the pedhas over .They will have browned on the bottoms.Cover & cook for 2-3 minutes.Take them off from the tawa. They should have burned  brown a little or turned golden brown on the other side as well.If not ,cook for a minute more.

Serve with chutni or tomato ketchup.....In fact, they are so yummy that they can be eaten just like that ! 

If grated beetroot is added , the cutlets will be dark pink ......
