Mixed Beans & Raw Banana Cutlet

Usually i used to soak either a packet of dry beans or few kgs of various varieties of dry beans and i will freeze them to use later while cooking, this is really very handy for me even if i forget to soak channa or any other dry beans for making out any dish...these frozen beans are ready for anytime to help us for cooking..Two months back i have freezed some white channas, rajmas,black-eyed peas, blackbeans,double beans,kala channas,dry green peas, after using for various dishes there were some leftover frozen beans and i mixed everything and pressure cooked them with salt which i planned to temper and have as sundal, but finally my little mind changed as usual and i finished making out some delicious cutlets with raw banana and with some left over breads, have a look at the picture how crisps these cutlets are, yea they tastes marvellous with rice for our lunch and also suits prefect for snacks as my lil one enjoyed having these crispies with ketchup..



2cups Mixed beans (any type & soaked)
1no Raw banana
1no Onion(chopped finely)
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
3/4tsp Red chilly powder
3nos Bread slices
Salt
Oil
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)

Pressure cook the mixed beans with enough salt and water upto 3 hisses, keep aside and let them cool, meanwhile peel the skin of raw banana, cut as large pieces and pressure cook (dont add water to the raw banana pieces but dont forget to add water in the pressure cooker) upto 3 hisses, drain the excess of water from the cooked beans..take the cooked beans and cooked raw banana pieces, mash everything nicely with ur fingers as coarse paste..heat few drops of oil and saute the chopped onions with garam masala powder, turmeric powder,salt and red chilly powder, add this spiced onions to the already mashed paste, soak the bread slices in water and press the soaked bread slices to squeeze out the excess of water with ur palms.. add this smashed bread slices and coriander leaves to the beans-raw banana paste..Mix everything well.

Make out small balls out of the beans-raw banana paste and flatten them with ur palms as any shape as desire...Heat oil for shallow frying and fry on both sides until the cutlets turns golden brown, drain the excess oil with paper towel..

Enjoy with any chutneys or simply with ketchup...

I like vegetable cutlets and used to have them from royal bakery. Earlier I used to visit the bakery daily to have my after luch stomach satisfaction. This has then further moved to a busy schedule and I dont find time to go there.

The cutlet with banana and mixed beans appears new recipe and yes ofcourse should be delicious.

I never heard about it before so it shouldbe your discovery. Nice work boss!!!
