Left Over Magic - Pattice

Yesterday evening, I opened my fridge with grouching hunger and I found some rice, daal and French beans sabzi. And I was totally bored of eating any of it on a Sunday evening. My husband suggested that we go out and grab a bite…but I a new idea cropped in my mind and though my husband under estimated me earlier, he was happily munching on the pattice I made out of the left over food!!
Here is the recipe!

3 to 4 tbspn. Cooked rice3 to 4 tbspn. French beans sabzi
3 to 4 kadipatta leaves
½ tspn. Coriander seeds powder
1 tspn. Chilly powder
1 tspn. Sugar
1 tbspn. cornflower
Salt to taste
Oil to shallow fry
½ cup milk
Bread crumbs

Mix the rice, sabzi, kadipatta leaves, coriander seed powder, chilly powder, salt, cornflower together. Add little bit of water if it becomes too dry. Now take half the quantity of the mixture and make a paste in the mixer. After that mix both the preparations together and make pattice out of the same. Dip the pattice in cold milk and then in the bread crumbs. Once they are ready shallow fry them in a frying pan.
Serve them with tomato Ketchup!
You may use whatever is left in the fridge instead of the above ingredients and make yummy pattice out of them!!
My husband couldn’t believe that it was the same rice and sabzi that he was eating with so much liking!!! :p
