Palak cutlet recipe - Spinach, chickpea cutlet recipe - Snacks recipe - Kids Friendly recipe

Last week when I was in India I had this cutlet at one of the near by restaurants. I thought it would be full of potatoes. But I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. I went with my niece and initially i had ordered only 1 to try out but ended up more packing home. So I added it to my list to try out. In that it had peas but I have decided to try out with chick peas as my 2nd one is not a big fan of Peas. But you can use peas in place of chickpeas / Channa. It is perfect for school snack boxes, burger patty or tea time snacks or party starters
