- 1/2 tbsp Finely Chopped Coriander
- 1 tsp Turmeric Powder

- After that, add the chopped garlic and finely chopped onions into the bowl. Mix and mash the mixture thoroughly, and make a soft dough.
- To provide the dough a better binding capacity to make nice-shaped cutlets, add psyllium husk(Isabgol) to the dough, and give everything a good mix.
- Now, prepare 7-8 medium-sized balls out of the final mixture. You can choose to flat the balls into a patty or any other shape of cutlets.
- Now take a frying pan, add ghee or unsalted butter onto the pan and fry the cutlets on a medium flame until they turn golden brown.
