Quinoa and Soya Kheema Cutlet



As a part of Protein rich dishes in mega marathon edition,today I am sharing a protein packed cutlet with soya kheema and quinoa.

This cutlet is a perfect party starter/snack as such or a wholesome meal when it is served with bun ansdsome veggies.

The best part of these cutlets are it can be made in bulk and freeze it for future use.I made those patties and store it in the ziplock bags.Whenever needed,just thaw it and shallow or deep fried.

To cut down the calories here I shallow fried the cutlets and served it with bun for our dinner.It was a quiet filling and comforting meal for us.With no further delay,lets move on to the recipe................
