Amla and Moong Dal – Tikkis/cutlets/burger patties

Amla Cutlets3


This veggie burger is a great easy lunch to make. I’ll sometimes make a big batch and refrigerate or freeze some of the patties to have for easily accessible, healthy lunches during the week.

Aside from being absolutely delicious, they’re also incredibly healthy. yellow lentils are naturally full of fiber and iron and adding Amla/Indian gooseberry makes it rich in vitamin C so this is a  diabetic friendly a both of which I often don’t get enough of in my day-to-day diet, along with a healthy dose of lean protein.
