Vegetable Cutlets

It's Diwali today................. Celebrations are all over the place.........  Here, it's me WISHING YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY DIWALI........

Cutlets are my favorite !!!! right from my childhood days. Whenever there's a special occasion or a guest at home.... my mom asks what shall we make for them... and inevitably, cutlet will top 'my most wanted' list.... I can still clearly remember the way she prepares them... First she'll make the filling.... then wrap it around with  a bread drenched and squeezed with milk.... then she slides them into oil.... and lift out the golden colored rounds. What a pleasure eating them!!!!!!!!!!!! It's only after that we became health conscious.... started to toss them over tawa... with only a few drops of oil.... but still their taste was nevertheless compromising... This recipe here is adapted from Rak's Kitchen
