Green Peas Cutlet |Hare Matar Ki Tikki



Life is a wonderful journey of constant discovery ! The desire to learn new recipes never stops in my case. Like if I am travelling in a different city, I try to order a new dish, this in turn gives me a opportunity to get inspire and make something of my own. This particular Peas Tikki/  Green Cutlet is an example of one such evening at a high end Pub in Bangalore. I liked it so much that after returning home I tried to recreate the same peas tikki. I love the peanuts in it here, it gives the dish a nice crunch. And ofcourse the mint leaves gives an amazing flavour combination. 

Ingredients :
1 cup Cottage Cheese(homemade)
3/4 cup Green peas
1 big boiled potato, mashed
1/4 cup Peanuts, dry roasted and peeled
2 Green chilies
5-6 Mint leaves
Aniseed /Saunf (roughly pounded)
White oil for frying
Salt to taste

Method:
Mash the chenna /cottage cheese well for 5 minutes. Grind peanuts in a coffee grinder so that it remains coarse. Do not add water. Keep aside. Now add green peas, chilies, mint leaves in the same coffee grinder and make a smooth paste. If you are finding very difficult to grind without water then add 2-3 drops at a time and run it. I never needed to add water though.

 In a big mixing bowl add all the above ingredients and mash properly. Make small round balls and slightly flatten them. In a non-stick pan, add 2 tbsp oil and shallow fry (flipping them intervals) till light brown in the center . When both the sides are done and you can see brown crust in the center it is ready. Serve with your choice of chutney.
