Red Spinach Cutlets

Have you ever eaten or heard of red spinach? If yes , then you have had another healthiest food on earth, and if not then you must try it!! 
Not only for it has almost all the spinach benefits but also for its medicinal properties, you have many reasons to try this leafy vegetable!! Not many people are aware of red spinach as it is grown only in some part of india (and America too). I've eaten this vegetable in many ways but I find having them like in these cutlets, tastier. The recipe is simple and can be baked or shallow fried ( I baked them) !
Hope you like it!!!!!

You need
250-300g red spinach (1 cup blanched red spinach)
9-10 potatoes (boiled)
Bunch of coriander leaves
6 bread slices ( cut in small pieces)
1 tablespoon cornstarch (or more)
1 teaspoon garlic powder (or 4 chopped garlic cloves)
1 teaspoon paprika
1\2 teaspoon pepper powder
2 teaspoon dry mango powder (amchur)
Salt to taste
6 tablespoon oil (if shallow frying)
2 tablespoon oil ( if baking)

1. Blanch the leaves (wash them and pat them dry. Put them in boiling water for a minute, strain and then put them in ice cold water. Squeeze the excess water and use)

2. In a bowl mix all the ingredients and mash them well.

3. Make 12 equal balls and flatten them, giving them round shape.

4. To shallow fry, in a pan, heat 6 tablespoon oil, fry both sides till crisp outside. OR  To bake, spray oil on the baking tray. Place the cutlets and pour 2 tablespoon oil on them. Bake at 200C for 10-15 minutes or till done.

5. Enjoy with green chutney or tomato ketchup!!
