Drumstick Leaves and Potato Cutlet/Aloo Tikkis with Drumstick Leaves

Cutlets or tikkis can be an excellent evening snacks depending upon the way how they are prepared. Some fry their cutlets by deepfrying while other goes for shallow fry, but pan frying makes some excellent guilt free cutlets. I make varieties of cutlets to feed easily vegetables to my kids as this is a best way to sneak vegetables. Kids love cutlets very much even if they are loaded with veggies. Vegetable cutlets are can be enjoyed thoroughly for evening snacks with your cup of tea or coffee without any guilt. My today's post goes for the healthy vitamin rich Drumstick leaves. Drumstick leaves are well known for their health values. We South Indians makes varieties of foods with this incredible Iron rich greens.I get this greens easily from Indian grocery very much fresh and i dont forget to grab a bag of these greens without any fail whenever i go to our usual Indian store. Indian greens are very much rare here but Thank god, these drumstick leaves are easily available now.
