Cutlets or tikkis are tempting and super easy to make and a very popular snack. This is south indian style easy version without the stuffing. They are crispy from outside and soft from inside.
Binding agent is very important to make these cutlets. These are made without cornflour, eggs and potatoes. Whenever you say cutlets, undoubtedly aloo tikkis come to mind. But, these tikkis without the aloo tastes really good. Tomato ketchup is more than enough for a dip.
Some may not enjoy oats on a daily basis but, when you make tikkis combining all these ingredients, your family will somehow love it. Summer is very hot in Chennai. Kids returning from school would love to sip some juice. So, I serve evening snack with a fruit juice for my kids. It is so filling and healthy as well.
Oats are usually used in diet recipes. This recipe is full of nutrients with broccoli, green moong dal and oats. Do try these healthy cutlets for your family and let me know the feedback.
