The love for food of my family motivated me and challenged me to become a cook. I always wanted to keep their love for food going on and hence it was a daunting task to try and create something different and unique and yet healthy food on a day to day basis.
My daughters always deny to eat roti or Dal chawal after coming from school. Everytime I search healthy recipes for them .This time I am more happy with this recipe because it contains chapatis.Even they can’t recognize it contains roti.
We played a game for guessing main ingredient and nobody could guess it.
Everyone loved this recipe .
Again this is one of my handy recipe after Leftover Roti (Chappati) Laddu to finish leftover chapati at home as they are yummy and healthy too. For this recipe I have chosen veggies of my choice, you can alter it according to your choice.You can serve this Cutlets in breakfast too.
This Cutlet recipe is adapted from shipy agrawal. I have been following her site for long time and a great fan of her recipes. If you find time, go through her blog to see some healthy recipes.
