Lobia Cutlet-Shallow fried Black Eyed Peas

Black eyed peas or Lobia are a good source of protein and there are many recipes that can be made using lobia.The cutlet recipe that I'm going to share today is very healthy and nutritious and if your child is a fussy eater,you can make this for him.
I have shallow fried the cutlets instead of deep frying them and have added some spices to enhance the taste of the cutlets.Give this recipe a try and I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

Ingredients:
White Lobia-2 cups,soaked for 6-8 hours
Ginger-1 small piece
Garlic-5-6 cloves
Green chilli-2
Onion-1 small
Coriander leaves-4 teaspoons
Black pepper powder-1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder-2 teaspoons
Aamchoor powder(Dried mango powder) -2 teaspoons
Garam masala powder-1 teaspoon
Oil-1 teaspoon for each cutlet

Method:
-Soak the white lobia in water for 6-8 hours.
-Take a pressure cooker and add 4-5 cups of water and add 1 teaspoon of salt to it.
-Put the soaked lobia in the cooker and pressure cook for 3-4 whistles.
-Take a mixer jar and add the chopped green chillies,garlic,ginger and coriander leaves and grind to make a paste.Keep this paste aside.
-Now in the same mixer jar add the boiled and cooled lobia along with a 1/2 teaspoon of salt and grind  it.Do not add any water.
-Take the lobia paste and mix it with the ginger-garlic-chilli paste.
-Add all the other spices and mix them properly and take small portions of the paste and make small balls and flatten it with your hands.
-Heat oil in a pan and gently place the cutlets on the pan and cook on low flame till both sides are properly done.
-Serve hot with spicy chutney or use it as a patty for burger.
