Green bean and oats cutlet /patties are very rich in protein and fiber are good for tea time snacks. Good for a tea party and as a healthy starter. For this recipe, I have used split moong beans or green beans or green gram dal with the skin we can use whole green beans sprout.

½ cup roasted rolled oats

1 teaspoon chopped ginger
2 green chili chopped
3 tbsp. chopped coriander
1 small boiled grated potato
¼ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon red chili powder
½ teaspoon dry mango powder
½ teaspoon cumin powder
Salt as to taste
Oil for shallow fry
Cook beans with 1 cup water until beans become soft and all water evaporated. Now mash beans with a spoon or blend in chopper until beans look like coarse paste.
Take out in a big mixing bowl, now combine all ingredients in beans and mix well.
Make equal size patties of any shape of your choice.
Now heat a non-stick pan, grease with oil, cook all patties until both sides evenly turn golden brown.
Serve hot with mint chutney or sauce.
Roast oats properly to avoid stickiness, patties can be a deep fry if you have a tea party.I did not try baking, but if any reader wants to do baking you can do and please share your experience with me.
Falafel is one of my favourite Middle Eastern dishes. I like to use it on a roll , with pitta bread or with salad .
½ cup dried chickpea (Kabuli chana)
2 clove garlic
2 Tbsp. coriander leave
2 slice white bread
4-6 Green chilli
½ onion chopped
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
50gm.Mix salad leave thinly sliced
1 small Onion diced
2 Tomato diced
1 small cucumber diced
4 tbsp. curd
1 tbsp. grated cucumber
Salt and pepper
Clean and soak chickpeas for 5-6 hour or overnight, then wash and drain. In a mixer grind chickpeas along with garlic, green chilli, coriander leave and salt to make a coarse paste. Add bread, onion and flour; then, run the mixer again until it is mixed.
Transfer the mixture to the bowl, cover and keep in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Take a small portion of the mixture and make a small ball and press slightly to flatten.
Heat oil in a pan, fry falafel on medium heat until golden brown. Serve hot with dip and salad.
To make dip take a bowl, add curd, cucumber and salt and pepper and mix well.
Combine all salad ingredients together arrange salad mixture on a serving platter then place falafel drizzle with curd dip.
If you can’t make ball add 1 tbsp. Flour or breadcrumb and mix. While frying, place one by one. First, fry one falafel and check whether it sustains its shape.
