Vegetable cutlets

These days it is very difficult to make children have vegetables and this is a daily struggle for most mothers. My way of making sure that my kids have some vegetables is in the form of vegetable cutlets. Nidhi loves fried cutlet with tomato sauce or rolled in roti or sandwiched in bread or to have with rice...
.....It is best to boil some potatoes along with some carrots and keep aside to cool. I also add most of the vegetables like beans, capsicum (both my kids hate capsicum and beans), cabbage, and a little bit of red or green spinach, cowpea (our very own achinga)....I mean whatever vegetables my kids don't have will find a place in my cutlets. If you have a mincer (food processor) it makes the job easier; all the work will be done by the mincer .......Now if you don't have a mincer just chop the onions, green chilly, ginger, and the vegetables relatively small. The best part is if you make cutlets and coat it in breadcrumbs it can be kept in fridge for 4 to 5 days. That is really a blessing for me  when my son fuzzes about his food......I temp him with this crunchy, yummy, spicy cutlets.

Potatoes: 1/2 kg.
Carrots: 1/4 kg.
Clean and wash the potatoes and put them into a cooker with little water and top it with cleaned and cut carrots. Steam it and leave it to cool. De-skin potatoes and smash it with carrots and keep aside.

Onion : 2.
Green chilies: 1 or 2.
Ginger: 1 small piece.
Put all three in a mincer and mince or chop them.

Beans: 250 gm.
capsicum: 250 gm.
capsicum: 250 gm.
A little bit of other vegetables which your kids don't have.
Put all this in a mincer.

Garam masala: 1 tsp.
Pepper powder: 1 tsp.
Vinegar: 1 tsp.
Oil for sauting and frying.
Bread crumbs.
Egg: 1.

Heat a kadai pour 3 tbsp oil into it. Add the chopped onion, green chilly, and ginger let it saute for sometime. Add salt. After it is sauted add the garam masala, vinegar, and pepper powder. Mix well and add the minced vegetables and let it really saute for sometime taking care to mix it nicely. When it is cooked add the smashed potatoes and carrots and mix well. Check for salt..if needed add more. Mix well for another 5 min and then switch off fire and leave it to cool. Roll them into oval or round shape with your hands.

My gorgeous cutlets waiting to be dipped in bread crumbs.

Beat 1 egg with a spoon and dip each cutlet into the egg and then roll in the breadcrumbs. You can store this in the fridge for upto 5 days make sure it stays in the top shelf. Fry them in hot oil (whenever your kids demand). Serve hot with tomato sauce.

Pidiyum Kozhiyum Recipe - How To Make Kerala Style Kozhi Pidi - Kerala Recipes

Pidiyum kozhiyum or kottayam style pidi is a traditional knanaya cuisine ; these rice dumpling have a thick gravy like sauce, unlike the dry versions of Malabar kakka roti or kozhi pidi. Knanaya style pidi is served with varutharacha kozhi curry. Traditionally, pidi is associated with baby shower ie when the daughter-in-law is sent to her parents house for delivery, it is customary for the mother-in-law to make kozhi pidi and we knanaya people still follow these traditions. My main aim is to preserve this recipe; so that the future generations can enjoy this wholesome dish. Pidi is rice dumplings which is simmered in water along with shallots, garlic, curry leaves, and coriander seeds; but I have used coriander powder instead to make the whole process easy. Amma mentioned that if using coriander seeds then; the water used to mix the rice flour should be sieved and that using fresh roasted coriander powder saves time. I have made a video recipe and I hope this you help
