I make cutlets very often - as often as there are leftovers :) This works out for me because my kids love to eat cutlets of any type. On this particular occasion I made these cutlets without using any leftovers. That is definitely new to me :) Another new thing is not using bread as the binding agent. I tried making this as a healthy snack for the kids by adding Oats and Spinach. The kids loved these and the adults at home hardly got to taste these. I guess a variety of vegetables can be used to make these much more interesting!

Oats Spinach Cutlet

Ingredients - 

Rolled Oats 1 cup
Potatoes, peeled, boiled and mashed 1 cup
Spinach, finely chopped 1 cup
Garlic 1 and Green chillies 1-2 , ground to a paste 
Salt as needed
Coriander leaves, chopped 1 Tbsp
Oil to shallow fry

Method Of Preparation - 

Pulse the rolled oats in a mixer to make a coarse powder.

Mix the powdered oats, mashed potato, finely chopped spinach, and the rest of the ingredients adding as little water as needed to make a stiff dough.

Heat a griddle/tawa and sprinkle some cooking oil. Pinch lime sized dough and make 2 inch discs with your palms and place them on the hot tawa/griddle.

Let them cook until they are golden brown on both sides and remove on to paper towels.
