Palak & Corn Cutlet


IMG_4363


As I am writing this,the whole of India[and many parts of the world]people are glued to the television,myself included.It seems as though everyone is affected by the Cricket frenzy.Facebook and Twitter is on fire,roads are empty,people are gathering in common places to watch the match together,theaters are screening the Final match on the big screen..and what not!


I don't remember when I watched India matches with this much interest and enthusiasm.Probably back in the 90's,when there were only few matches being played and telecast and whenever India played,it was a festival.Now,with so many matches being played throughout the year,the interest kind of fizzled down and at some point,I didn't even know who played for the national team,apart from the big names!


We are having a party at a friends place tonight and I made these Palak and corn cutlets to take along.Mildly spiced with the goodness of Spinach,this one is truly a winner.Now let's hope India lifts the World cup later in the day!
