Rajma Cutlet recipe - Red Kidney bean cutlet Recipe - Rajma Tikki Recipe - Snacks Recipe - Starter Recipes

During my college days I loved  vegetable cutlet. The best one was from the roadside push cart one near my home. He sold it from 5 PM and we used to wait for the time and rush to buy. It was the  most wanted after school snack for myself and my sisters. These days that push cart is no more I really miss that. My kids love the tikkis or cutlets. Cutlets can be served as snacks or stuffing to bread or addition to salad or placed as part wrap. so it is perfect multi purpose recipe. It can be deep fried as well as shallow fried. These days most of the time I do shallow fried. I have added 2 tablespoon of cheese gratings. But you can avoid it or replace it with paneer
