    Wow, this is a pretty cool recipe. It seems healthy as well …
    Do you think we can add vegetables to this cutlet? If yes, what kind of vegetables ? What about green such as spinach?


  2. creativecooking Says:

    Yes Maya, you can add spinach in it, but it should be finely chopped and then boiled or you can simply use the frozen spinach. You can also use carrots (minced), bell pepper (finely chopped), green beans (finely chopped), spring onions (finely chopped) and paneer (grated).

    It is really a very healthy and tasty snack…
