Spinach Cutlet

I am always in search of good spinach recipes. Few days ago, I was chatting with my sister in law and asked her if she had any good recipes with it. She gave me a cutlet recipe. The following is inspired by that. It can be served as a starter at parties too. They get ready very fast and have a great taste.

1 cup finely chopped spinach
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
1 and 1/2 cups boiled,mashed potatoes
1 tbl spn rice flour
3 green chilies ground into paste
1 tea spn ginger paste
1 tea spn garlic paste
1 tea spn pav bhaji masala (or garam masala)

Mix all the ingredients except sooji/rava. Make into ping pong sized balls.
Press each ball into cutlets. Roll these cutlets in sooji/rava.
Spread some oil on a tava and shallow fry the cutlets. Serve hot.

Serves : 2-3
Preparation time : 20mins

  1. hi again, great pic of the whole process of making these healthy cultlets. i fint cutlets really good for kids where they can hold it and eat it.
    I love cutlets in general with tomato as it counters the oil

  2. I love the idea of adding a handful of spinach leaves to everything. For me its carrots, I add some grated carrots to pretty much everything I make :-).

  3. Hi Shipla I am fan of yor recepies, Thanks for posting different experiments especially Spinach.

Please let me know with your suggestions! Thank you for everything you posted. (I am afraid of Spices)

  4. Hey Shilpa

    Can I substitue Suji/Rava with besan. I am gluten intolerant and cannot eat anything that has wheat, rye or barley in it..The cutlets look yummy and I would definitely wanna try them:)

  5. Very simple & easy recipe. Will try this soon. I just wanted to know whether we should use raw spinach or blanch it before chopping?

  6. Hi Shilpa,
