Red bean patty (Rajma Cutlets)

Leftover boiled Red beans/Rajma??...Try Red bean patty(Rajma Cutlets) I am sure next time you will be boiling the beans specially for this!!

A healthy option to replace regular Potato patty(aloo tikki) with these red bean patty!!

All you need:

1 cup boiled rajma(red kidney beans)
1 medium size boiled potato
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 medium size finely grated carrots
1/2 cup boiled green peas
2 bread slices crumbs
1 green chilies finely chopped
1/4 tsp cumin seeds

Oil to cook/ cooking spray

How to prepare:
  • In a mixing bowl add boiled rajma(red beans), potatoes, carrot & green peas and mash all by hand or  masher. 
  • Grease your palms with few drops of oil and make cutlets (round or your preferred shape) from the mix.
  • Make sure the patties are less than 1/2 inch in thickness. 
To serve:
These patties can be either shallow fried or deep fried. I personally prefer to cook with minimum oil on flat pan. 
  • To shallow fry, cook the patties on medium heat. It will take a bit longer to get desired crispiness.
  • If deep frying, coat the patties with cornflour or bread crumbs for a crispier coating. Fry till it's golden brown and crispy on outside.

Serve hot with green chutney, tomato ketchup, buns, soup or anything of your choice !!

Tip : You can store the uncooked patties in an air tight container in freezer section and use as you want.
