Aval (Poha in Hindi) & Bread Cutlet

This recipe helps me clean up the left over bread in my kitchen. For a long time, I had no clue as to what I could possibly use left-over bread for...I found my answer ...

Things you will need:

Aval(Poha in Hindi) - half cup
Bread -6 to 8 - i used left over
Potatoes - 3 - cooked and mashed
Onion - 1 medium- diced
green chillies- 3 - diced
Cilantro- chopped
Garam masala powder
pepper powder
lime juice
ginger- 1 medium - chopped
chilly pwd - if u like it spicy
Egg white
Dry Bread Crumbs

Preparation Method:

In a pan , add some oil and fry onions, ginger, green chillies until they lose their raw smell.

In a bowl add aval. Add 2 tsps of water to soften it. Then dip each bread slice in water ( do not keep it in water, this is to get it wet) and add it ( break into pieces )to the aval . Then add the potatoes , fried onions, garam masala, peper pwd, lime juice, salt to taste,chilly pwd,and cilantro. Mix it to form a dough.

Take small lemon size pieces and flatten it in the shape of a cutlet.Dip this in egg white and then in bread crumbs.

Deep fry in oil.

Serve with ketchup or any chatpata sauce.
