It’s been sometime I have put any fried snack here. Summer has atlast vanished Now, the weather is good, it’s raining at times but pleasant. Loving this weather and the splendid climate ! Well, it’s hinting me to make some fried snacks to binge. Today, I present to you Nawabi  Green Cutlets.

I am a kind of person who loves good food and love to try my hand at different kind, but I always prefer shallow frying, keeping the health factors in mind. But yesterday, I did deep fry and they were so good, crunchy on the outside with soft gooey filling inside. It was a few green vegetables along with potato and onion that I used. Greens were capsicum, peas and spinach. In the middle of the mixture, I had kept a filling of cottage cheese with dry fruits and deep fried. Let me take you to the recipe without much ado.
