"Crispy Cutlets" - made from Broken Wheat and Cottage Cheese

Broken wheat or Daliya or Burgul is as we all know boosts energy and enhances stamina.
Cottage cheese or Paneer is a food that is low in calories and high in protein.
Hence, broken wheat and Cottage cheese combination is very good for our overall health.
Although broken wheat is good for health, its not very palatable and not really liked by many, especially kids.
I make "Tabbouleh" or "Lebanese Broken Wheat Salad" quite often, but its not easy to convince my little one to eat it.
So today I decided on trying something new and different, which is not just healthy but also tasty and appealing to us and kids too!
So I made these cutlets using broken wheat as well as cottage cheese! Very simple to make and yet delicious!
After shallow frying they turned out very crispy so I have named it "Crispy Cutlets"!

Makes 12

Broken wheat/Daliya/Burgul - 1/2 cup
Cottage Cheese/Paneer - 1/2 cup
Onion - chopped - 1/4 cup
Chaat masala - 1/4 cup
Green chillies - 1 or 2
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp

Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp 
Coriander leaves - chopped - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp for shallow frying

Soak the Broken Wheat for 1 hour and then drain away all the water.
Take a large bowl, crumble the cottage cheese with your hand and then add the broken wheat and all the other ingredients and mix well.
Shape into cutlets and shallow fry in 2 tbsp oil.
Serve hot with Dates n Tamarind Chutney.
These cutlets can be served for evening tea, or a starter to a dinner meal or even packed in lunch boxes.
