Quinoa Green Moong Cutlet Recipe / Quinoa Patties

quinoa green moong cutlet recipe

This quinoa green moong cutlet recipe / Quinoa patties / Green moong tikki is an innovative guilt free snack from my kitchen. I have some quinoa bags in my pantry so I thought of trying to make my own variation of quinoa patties along with green gram for binding, it came out so good. Quinoa and green moong dal, both are in super food list and they are rich in protein and good for weight loss. Even vegan can have it.

Quinoa cutlet is a healthy and nutritional rich snack. I wanted to make it with Indian twist. So I added some Indian spices to rich the flavor of the cutlet. You can add mashed potato or sweet potato to the cutlet for binding. But in this quinoa green moong cutlet recipe, I used green gram for binding. You can have it in burgers or sandwiches. I had it with frankie roll. I will post the recipe soon.
