Nut Cutlet is a crunchy cutlet made of nuts. I tried this recipe from a magazine and it is a great snack for tea time.
2 cups boiled and mashed potatoes
2 tbsp cashews
2 tbsp peanuts (groundnuts) with out skin
2 tbsp almonds (blanched /slivered)
1 slice of bread
2-3 green chillies
1/2 tsp Garam masala (found in the Indian store)
1tsp finely chopped ginger
1/2 cup cilantro
2-3 tbsp all purpose flour (maida)
1-2 cups of bread crumbs
Lemon juice (optional)
Chop the cashew nuts, peanuts and almonds with nut chopper or knife. They should be of medium size, not to small and not too big.
In a bowl add the mashed potatoes, salt, chillis, ginger, garam masala, the nuts, cilantro, and bread slice. Mix them all well.
In another bowl add very few drops of water to the all purpose flour to make a thin paste.
Make desired shape out of the cutlet mixture, dip them into the flour batter and then coat them with bread crumbs.
Either deep fry or just pan fry the cutlets. I pan fried the cutlets on medium heat by tossing them gently. This way less oil is used.
The whole process including the boiling of potatoes did not take more than 30 minutes. Frying takes about 3-4 minutes each side.

We had filled this basket.
It was so much fun going to this farm. In the middle of picking peaches it started raining and we were taking shelter under the trees. The rain showers were mild and didn't last for long. The fresh smell of soil and the greenery was a very beautiful weekend experience.
