Sprouted Green Peas Cutlet

The taste of fresh peas is one for which I will be addicted for ever. When you relish the softness and sweetness of cooked fresh peas, you would never turn your heads towards the frozen ones. Atleast, that's me. So whenever the season of peas sets in, I just jump in and grab as much as I can. They find a permanent place in my fridge and I have a special air tight dabba just for storing my peas.

This year when the peas came fresh into market, I don't know what came over me, but I was buying and storing them as if peas had gone into extinction. Might be my experience with the frozen ones. I had bought a packet of frozen peas sometime back and when I opened it, it had this weird smell that I had to throw it away and it had not even crossed the expiry date too... Grrrr.
Back to business, I got so much that my dabba started overflowing and the peas started sprouting... Without further ado, wanted to use them up asap and that is when I made these cutlets for the family.

~*What U Need*~
Potatoes - 2(medium)
Onion - 1(medium)
Sprouted green peas - 1 cup
Tomato ketchup - 1 tbsp
Green chilli - 1
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Egg - 1
Bread crumbs - to coat
Oil - to fry

How I made it:
Pressure cook potatoes for 3 whistles, peel the skin and mash well. Pressure cook the sprouted green peas for 1-2 whistles.
Heat 1 tsp oil in a kadai and when hot add the ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell fades off. Add chopped onions and fry till soft. Add tomato ketchup and fry for 1 min.

Add finely chopped green chillies and mix well. Add the masala powders and salt and saute well. Add mashed potatoes and mix well. Next in goes the green peas

Mix well and then start kneading with hand till it comes together as a dough. Pinch small balls out off this and flatten into cutlet shape. Dip into beaten egg and then coat evenly with bread crumbs. Deep fry in oil or toast in less quantity of oil till evenly cooked.

Serve with some ketchup!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
