  • Cook the vegetables.I cooked them on steam to reduce the moisture content because for cutlets or kababs we dont want the mix to be very loose.
  • Pressure cook the dals.
  • Heat oil in a pan and saute the onions until translucent.
  • Grind the ginger,garlic and green chillies into a paste.Add this to the onion and fry till the raw smell takes off.
  • Next add in the spices and fry for a few more secs.
  • Now add the cooked dal and let the water evaporate to get at thick mixture.
  • Then add the cooked veggies and salt.
  • Mash the dal and veggies while stirring.
  • Now transfer the contents into a bowl and let it cool.
  • Then add the besan flour and mix well.
  • For cutlets you can proceed the way as you make ordinary cutlets.Making discs,dipping in the beaten egg ,then in the breadcrumbs and so on.It can be deep fried,baked or grilled.
  • For the kebab add the breadcrumbs to the mix to make it more firmer.Then make balls out of it and then transfer on to a bamboo skewer working on to get an oval shape.
  • Now brush it with beaten egg whites.Repeat for the remaining.
  • Grill the skewers turning occasionally until it is lightly browned.
