Baked Vegetable patties

I love baking and like to bake whenever deep frying is required in recipes. So we can enjoy the baked version without worries of oil or calories. If you want to try a different sandwich using vegetable patties, try this recipe. The vegetable patties are baked than deep fried. You can either make sandwiches using them or serve them as cutlets also. Adding oats is optional, but I love oats and it makes the patties more healthy.

1/2 cup onion chopped
1 cup vegetables of your choice ( I used carrots, peas, corn, beans)
1/4 cup oats ( I used Quaker oats, old fashioned) 
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2" piece ginger chopped
2 green chillies chopped
3 bread slices
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
few Coriander leaves chopped
1 tsp oil

Dry roast the oats in a pan for few minutes. It should be slightly brown and should emit good aroma.Keep aside the roasted oats.

In the same pan, heat the oil. Add the cumin seeds. When they splutter, add the ginger and green chillies. Saute for a minute and then add onions. When they turn slight brown, add the vegetables. Cook covered for a few minutes.When the vegetables are cooked, add the chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala and salt.Finally add chopped coriander leaves. Mix well and transfer to a bowl.Allow it to cool.You can mash the vegetable mixture slightly once cooled.Check for the salt and chilli for the vegetable mixture at this point.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350F. Now add the roasted oats also to the bowl.Dip the bread slices in water and squeeze the water out. Add these to vegetables-oats mixture in the bowl. Mix thoroughly. Now make small balls out of it and make the patties in the shapes as you desire.

Line a baking tray with aluminum foil. Apply a little oil on all the sides of the patties. Transfer them to the baking tray. Bake for about 15-20 minutes. Flip to other side in between. They should get brown on both sides.

Make sandwiches with these patties or serve them like cutlets with tomato ketchup or Mint chutney.

Make about 4-5 medium size patties.
