Pigeon Peas Cutlet

Pigeon Pea/togari kalu/whole green toor is available plenty in the market. Normally it is the season of pigeon peas during the winter. You do get good tender peas and we can prepare many dishes using pigeon peas.

I have prepared pigeon peas and cluster beans dry curry for the afternoon lunch and little curry was left and as usual just used this remaining dry curry with some potatoes and prepared Cutlets for the evening and it was just beautiful to have it as snack.

No Onion Or No garlic in this " Pigeon Peas Cutlet".

Note :

I have deep fried these cutlets. You can shallow fry them on tava. (Optional).
Do not overcook potatoes. You can use flattened rice/Avalakki instead of bread. I have used brown bread. You can powder the bread slices with a mixi dry grinder. You can also add onions and garlic to cutlet dough. I have not added.
