Pasta Potato Cutlet

If i want to feed vegetables easily to my kids, i'll just go for tikkis aka cutlets. Mashed vegetables work out awesome for making shallow fried patties and we can just feed anyone with any vegetable. I seriously want to give a try to cutlets prepared with cooked pastas, and finally i did it. Again i used alphabet pasta for making this easy and dangerously addictive cutlets. Its was raining cats and dogs here, obviously once we are back from work and school everyone at home askssomething warm and crispy for their snacks. Since tikki or cutlets can be prepared very much earlier, i prepared the cutlets sunday afternoon and kept in fridge to fry for monday evening. Since pasta and potato works awesome in this tikkis, this cutlets came out extremely prefect to enjoy warm with a cup of tea or coffee.
