Rice Cutlets

We usually take care to make fresh food daily as per the requirements of our family. But still sometimes due to parties or occasions some extra food remains and you just keep on wondering how to use it in the best possible way.

Most of times it so happens with me that I can perfectly judge the quantity of all the other dishes to be prepared but always goof up with the amount of  rice and rotis which I make. Since we are rice eaters I feel that people will go for rice and since nowadays people tend to avoid rice for weight controlling reasons I feel they will go for chapatis. And finally I end up making both in excess.

 It is at such times that this cutlet dish comes to my help. I make it the following morning for breakfast and all the extra rice gets over without any murmurs or fussiness from the family .

These tasty cutlets can be made without any special ingredients and you can even add some veggies like minced carrots, french beans, cabbage if you want to. Off course you can use freshly cooked rice too for this purpose but the leftover rice gives better texture to these cutlets. So if you don't have any leftover rice , cook rice in advance and make the cutlets after 5 to 6 hours.
