Servings 12 small pieces


  • 1 Cup Leftover Pulao
  • 1 Cup Aloo Matar Curry
  • 3-4 Dry Bread Slices
  • Handful of Spinach/Cilantro/Coriander leaves
  • 1-2 Green Chilies
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp Red Chilli Powder optional
  • Salt as per taste


  • Dry extra curry from Aloo Matar.
  • Add all the ingredients(Pulao, Aloo Matar, bread pieces, green chilies, spinach leaves and spices). I did not use much of the spices here as pulao and curry already have spices.
  • Pulse to a coarse mixture.
  • Apply little oil to your hands, then shape in to the patties of the desired size.
  • Switch on the Air fryer at 350F for 15 minutes. When it indicates ADD FOOD add the cutlets and cook till done.
  • Once done patties with turn light brown. In between when Air Fryer indicates TURN FOOD, turn cutlets, brush some oil and then cook for next 7-8 mins.


  • In case you do not have any of the leftover you can still make these patties with Boiled Chana and leftover steamed rice.
  • Mix together boiled potato/peas or any other grated vegetable, poha/steamed rice(leftover), spinach /cilantro leaves.
  • For gluten-free version add powdered /rolled oats/chickpea flour or poha for binding.
