Soy Crumbs and White Rice Patties

 As I am recollecting my salad and sandwich days, today my mouth watered for some yummy sandwiches.  Usually on weekends when I make VJ stuff up with heavy lunch, he craves for some light dinners in the evening. My homemade patties will be handy in those days. As I have settled down little bit here in BLR, i wanted to make a set of homemade patties, for future quick light dinner fixes.  In the past I have made some patties with healthy ingredients like Black Bean Brown Rice Patties, Veggie Patties etc... But today I gave them a protein twist by making them with Soya Nuggets (meal makers) which are available very easily and in all stores here in India.
Soya Crumbs and White Rice Patties
Soya Nuggets ( meal makers) - 1/2 cup
White Rice ( Cooked) - 1/4 cup
Potato (boiled) - 1 cup
Carrot (small pieces) - 1/2 cup
Peas - 1/4 cup
Corn - 1/4 cup
cabbage (shredded) - 1/2 cup
cashew nuts - 5 to 6
salt - 1 tsp
black pepper - 1/2 tsp
crushed red pepper - 1tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
lime juice - 1 tbsp
oil - 2 tbsp

How to Make it:

  1. First soak the Soya nuggets in the water for 1/2 hour.
  2. Boil 1 cup of water and add the soaked soya nuggets to the boiling water and boil it for 10 min. Take them out form the heat and let them cool.
  3. Take 1 tbsp oil in the pan and add the cabbage, carrot  and saute them. 
  4. Add Peas and corn and let them cook on low heat for 2 min
  5. once the vegetables are cooked add the mashed boiled potato
  6. add salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, coriander powder and mix it well. take the mixture from the heat and let it cool.
  7. Fry the cashew nuts and crumble them into small pieces and add it to the potato mixture.
  8. Chop the (boiled and cooled) soya nuggets into small pieces and add it to potato mixture.
  9. Add cooked white rice and lime juice. Mix the mixture very well (mixing by hand gives good results).
  10. Heat the 1 tbsp oil in the deep wide pan. Divide the mixture make into patties on your palm.Fry them on both sides in the pan and let them cool for a while.

That is it!!!!! Serve over Brown or whole wheat bread with onion, tomato cucumber rings with side of some chips. Your Fast Food but not Fat  Food is ready.

Lock the remaining patties (once they are cool) in the ziplock covers and refrigerate them for your future quick dinner fixtures.
Look how beautiful it looks when I served the patties on the brown bread ( Swiss musselli recipe) with some veggies on top and chips on the side for some crunch. 

If you please excuse me for a min, I have to grab a bite of that.... ;-)

Note: This bread is not home made (one day I will make it at home :-)). Thanks to 'Daily Bread' for their vast spread of bread varieties.
