Millet Cutlets

During my childhood visits to my grandma's place, we were encouraged to offer jowar or millet to anyone who comes asking for food at our door step. I remember that there used to be bins filled with these grains specifically labelled for donation. And sitting here today, I am wondering why such nutrient rich grains never found their way into our tummies then. 

I came to know that millet is available in Whole Foods Market here and I have been itching to get my hands on fox-tail millet since then. Finally I get to showcase the recipe I made using the millet for Day 5 of BM #14. :)

Foxtail Millet
Ingredients - 

Millet/Korralu/Foxtail Millet 1/4 cup [Note that it is not Jowar but a different grain] 
Potatoes boiled and mashed 1/2 cup
Carrots grated 1/4 cup
Cabbage finely grated 1/4 cup
Capsicum finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Bread Crumbs 1 1/2 cups [I powdered 3 slices of whole wheat bread]
Salt as needed
Green chillies or Red chilli powder as needed
Garam Masala/Chana Masala as needed 
Oil to shallow fry
[Ginger, garlic, coriander leaves, curry leaves, mint can be included but I made a simple version]

Millet Cutlets

Method Of Preparation -

Cook millet in a pressure cooker with about 1/2 - 3/4 cup of water until the millet is soft and the water is absorbed. Set it aside to cool. I used previously cooked and cooled millet.

Boil carrots, capsicum and cabbage and set it aside.

In a mixing bowl, add the millet, mashed potato, boiled veggies, salt, red chilli powder and garam masala. Mix well and adjust the taste as required.

Add about 3/4 cup of breadcrumbs and keep the remaining crumbs to roll the patties.

Knead the mixture to a stiff dough and pinch lime sized portions and pat them into small discs (patties), roll them in bread crumbs and set aside.

In a heated griddle spray oil as needed and shallow fry the prepared patties on both sides until they are golden brown and crisp. 

Remove from fire and continue to shallow fry the rest of the patties. 

Serve with ketchup or chutney of your choice.
