Moong Potato Cutlet is a deep fried cutlet made with whole moong and potato in a spice mix. These make an excellent party dish and for evening snacks as well.
Basically these cutlet freezes well and so you can make these ahead and freeze and use it when you need it. With this month being my site anniversary month, I always host the Kids Delight Anniversary Party. What’s a party without some fried dishes for the kids!
These cutlets were a hit with the kids and I even sent some for the breakfast the next day. The cutlet turns out very filling and so you can make smaller ones if you are including these in a party menu.
We are starting the second week of BM#105, with Anniversary Party Theme.
