Noodles Cutlet / Tikki - Bake or Toast 'em

I don't have that many cutlet/tikki recipes in my space. Reason being 'A' prefers oven roasted fries to cutlets for his tea time snack and more than that I am too lazy to boil, fry, season, do an egg wash and then again pan fry them.

The huss is in favor of getting an occasional pack of 2-minute noodles. Says it makes for a fuss-free lazy-Saturday-Sunday breakfast. Between you and me, it makes his job of weekend cooking easy. And again between you and me, weekends are sleep-till-10am-days for me. It so happens that he wakes up early, makes the noodles for self and by the time I wake up it dries off and I will have to punch it down through my throat and at times it visits the bin too.

It was then that I started browsing for recipes that used noodles in some way or the other and luckily I came across a Tarla Dalal one. It is a great way to use leftover noodles (if you are left with some) and is a sure kid-pleaser or any crowd of any age pleaser. You could either pan fry or deep fry them or even bake them in the oven as I did in case you are too calorie conscious. And for the record, I am not sooo calorie-conscious. I baked them just to see how they would turn up and they are definitely not my type. But it makes a great option when you are serving these cutlets to your elders.

You could also slide them in between burger buns, top it with onions and tomato rings, a dollop of mayo and a slice of cheese.

~*What U Need*~
Maggi(5 Rs pack) - 1
Potato - 1,large
Carrot - 1,medium,grated
Onion - 1
Green chilli - 1
Garlic - 2 cloves
Ginger - 1"
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
Salt, oil - as needed
Bread crumbs - to toast
Egg - 1

How I Made it:
Boil potatoes and peel the skin. Mash them and set aside. Grate the carrot. Chop onions. Break the maggi and prepare as per instructions.
Heat oil, saute finely chopped ginger, garlic and green chilli. Add onions and saute till brown. Add the carrot and saute for 5 mins. Next throw in the red chilli-, coriander-, garam masala powders and fry. Mix the mashed potato and combine well. Remove from flame, once cooled add the prepared maggi and combine well. Take care not to break the noodles. Form cutlets of desired shape.
Break the egg, beat well. Alternatively you cam combine 1 tbsp flour with 2 tbsp water and use the slurry. Dip the cutlet in this, roll in breadcrumbs to evenly coat. Deep fry or toast in oil. You can also bake in a preheated oven @ 210 C for 20 mins. Flip and bake for another 10 mins to get a healthier version.

Serve with pulao or as evening snack or slide in between burgers.

** My Notes:
** You could use whole wheat noodles also.
** The next time I try this it is gonna be with Curry noodles but if you try that do let me know how it turned up.
** Instead of egg, you could use cornflour slurry to coat the tikkis.

So thats it Folks...
