Moong And Masoor Dal Cutlets Or Yellow And Red Lentil Cutlets

Dal or lentil cutlets. Cutlets made of yellow and red lentil or moong and masoor dal.
A spicy delicious teatime snack with all the healthy ingredients.
I have fried the cutlets but you can also air fry or shallow fry the cutlets to make completely guilt free.

Yellow and red lentil, all the spices, paneer or cottage cheese, potatoes and a binding agent. Mix everything together and make your spicy and tasty evening snack. You can also make these round to make burgers. Choice is yours.
I have used powdered oats for binding but you can use bread crumbs, roasted chickpea flour or corn flour for binding. Use whatever you have.
If you want your cutlets more spicy, then use more chopped green chilli, red chilli powder or chilli flakes. I have used two green chilli and one red chilli. I have used fresh homemade paneer or cottage cheese. Get the recipe here.
I have served these cutlets with green chutney and tomato oambal or chutney.
