Maggi Cutlets

Maggi Cutlet is a take on creating a snack made using the all time favorite Maggie noodles. An attempt to make it healthy by adding vegetables and cheese. This works as a good tea snack option and a hit with kids as well.

Hop on the blog to find more cutlets namely, Chana Dal ke Kebab, Kalmi Vada and Bread Rolls.

Some time ago, V’s colleague invited us over. She is a north-Indian & dishes up very tasty food more to the taste we like. She also has many quick snacks & sandwich recipes up her sleeve. Everytime I’ve been to her place, she has treated us to a new snack. And V would gorge telling me with his mouth full to replicate the same snack at home.

Well I obliged him this time and made Noodles Cutlet which she served us. What I liked about this snack was use of maggi to create a cutlet. I never ever thought it. She rolls the cutlets in bread crumbs, I felt that adding them into the batter makes them more stable while frying.
