Healthy protein-Soy Cutlets

I wanted to prepare these for a very long time, but every time I used to make something else.  But this time I did it.  They were a big hit in my home both my kids loved and liked them.  Here is the simple recipe I used from the nutrela soy granules box and I made some changes according to my family's liking.  Here is the simple recipe.

2 cups boiled Nutrela granules
3 medium potatoes boiled
10-12 french beans chopped finely
2 fistfuls of green peas, blanched/boiled
1 carrot cubed and boiled
6 green chillies chopped finely
3 bread slices/ 1/4 th cup of bread crumbs, I used bread crumbs.
1 tsp chaat masala
1 tsp amchur powder
Handful of moong sprouts (Optional)
2 tbsp coriander leaves (Optional)
Oil for deep-frying

In a mixing bowl, keep the boiled potatoes, peas and carrots, and thinly chopped french beans.
Add the boiled and squeezed soya granules to the same bowl.
Add salt, green chillies, chaat masala, amchur powder, moong sprouts & coriander leaves if using.  
Mash and bind with the bread crumbs or soak the bread slices in water for few seconds and remove from water and squeeze.  Make like dough.
Pinch balls and shape like patties.
Heat oil in a kadai/wok or frying pan, deep fry. 
Serve hot with onion slices & Coriander-mint dip.
